c5 Challenge : Choosy Chicks Choose Chicklets Challenge


 
I ultimately decided to add electric blue to the lovely green of the Sue Bead... along with some shades of green that match *perfectly*. There are China glass faceted beads, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and stick pearls...
 The blue crystals are coated clear rock crystal quartz.


See? Perfect! :)






I adore how this set turned out! I think it's just lovely.

  3. I never would have thought of wire wrapping the chicklet! I love the color palette you used. It makes me think of a unique plant growing in the ocean. Beautiful job!!

  14. Very different... I know, that sounds like I'm saying someone has a good personality, right? LOL But it is different, and makes me think about using a bead in a different way, and that's a GOOD thing!

  21. I ADORE this set too, Andrea! It's BEAUTIFUL! Magical, special and exquisite jewelry art. The colorway of the rich, natural elements: the ethereal blue crystal quartz point, pearls, Swarovski, lampwork. A fairy tale jewelry ensemble. I'm so in love. Isn't it amazing the gorgeous art that can come through a gifted, powerful, and beautiful artist like you? I love this so much, I have to create two pages in our magazine!! It's stunning!! The STAR of the show!! xxoo
