It started with a gorgeous pink chain I custom ordered from Miss Fickle Media (Shannon does awesome work!) to match the heart pendant I made from washi paper and amazing glaze. My mom had requested a pink piece of jewelry.
I had fun making all my bronze balled-end head-pins - I got to use my Lenk torch again, and tumbled them all shiny! I used my own lampwork beads in coordinating colors - the ones that look somewhat blue (at least on my monitor) are actually made from evil purple and are actually purple! I made the wraps somewhat informal on purpose, to kind of offset the formality of the whole necklace. I want it to be wearable with many different things!
I used coordinating swarovski crystal colors in bicones and rounds. They were pink, purple and very light topaz. It is so hard to see the correct colors because I am taking the photos at night here in Pittsburgh where we get less sunny days than Seattle.
I hope you enjoyed looking at the piece I made and I hope you check out what these other fabulous designers made with their color palettes!
