I'm writing this ahead of time and scheduling it to post so the blog isn't quite so barren while I'm gone.
I made a boatload of jewelry over the Labor Day weekend (yeah, I know, hard to believe, but I really DO make jewelry with all the stuff I buy - I'm just faster at the buying part!) Here are a couple of the items I made (more to follow later in the week):
I really enjoy Margie Deeb's color trend reports and recommendations. Somewhere on her website or in one of her articles, I came across her suggestion that lime green looks great with lavender, purple and cobalt blue. I thought I'd try it out to see if I agreed.
I'm pretty sure I do. Initially I had a couple of small shots of yellow in this design, but after fiddling with it for a while, I decided they weren't needed.
In a completely different vein (because my style remains totally eclectic at the best of times), I paired this darling red and white ceramic pendant with gunmetal chain links and vintage glass.
Originally, the color scheme was just white, aqua and red, but I kept thinking it wasn't quite "alive" enough. So, I added the yellow. What do you think? Over the top? Or necessary element.
And that's "Katrina in the Garden." (the vendor named the pendant that for the listing on Etsy and I thought it was cute so I kept it).
