I like so many styles. It shows in these two pieces I made recently. I bought some Azalea Vintage Plastic Bead Blend from Allegory Gallery. I love the color mix, and plastic beads are so nice and light. Vintage plastic seems to have a nicer quality than modern plastic. I love how the mix looks, so I decided to make a memory wire bracelet to show it off. There are a few other things in there. I was thinking of making something else, and I dumped it together on my bead board with another complementary color mix I had.
I love pink. Wouldn’t this look fabulous with white linen?
Then I wanted to make a necklace with some Hebron glass beads I’d gotten. I love their rustic look. I had thought I would simply hang them off some cool chain with jump rings. When I was looking through my chain, I saw this great patina ball chain from Supply Your Soul. I love the patina choices in this shop. This chain color is called wabi-sabi. I swooned over it for some time and finally got some. This is a great use of it because it really lets both the chain and the beads stand out, and the beads can slip right on the chain.
This necklace is so quiet compared to the happy cheerfulness of the bracelet. I like both styles (and many more). The variety is why making jewelry is so fun.
