As part of Artbeads.com blogging program I get to try out many of their new products and this "Lillypilly" shell pendant is one of them. I was drawn to this piece for its color and modern design. I paired it with an amethyst bead and a hill tribe spacer bead... a modern but feminine pendant. Oxidized sterling joins the two and hangs from a sterling ball chain.
You can find "Violet Waves" in my Etsy shop.
Another favorite of mine are the czech glass beads that Artbeads carries. They seem to be always adding something new, and some are in limited supply...so get them while you can! I used Picasso square beads for this bracelet
Chunky czech glass beads in a lilac color are wire wrapped in copper. A yellow turquoise bead adds contrast and is all dressed up in handmade bead caps. A polymer clay bead unites the two colors. I hand forged a hook and eye and heat treated it for some interest. Two metal beads finish off this one of a kind bracelet.
Lilac Breeze can be found in my Etsy shop.
