Isn't It Romantic?
N'est-il pas romantique? Aren't all those random threads just lovely? Here's some bits and pieces of the necklace that I've been working on in the orange, green, and brown colors that I blogged about earlier.
I'm combining 3 different components from Lisa Kan's book, Bead Romantique, into this one necklace. I'm actually much further along that what you see in the picture. Think crystals. Oh so many sparkly crystals! And one sweet little herringbone flower.
A bit of fringe? Perhaps. Or not. Even though I'm working within in the confines of a specific palette and project I'm still not completely planning this piece from beginning to end. I very rarely ever plan out what I'm going to make. I usually start with a "somewhat idea" in mind and go from there. The second color that I'll be working with is "Deep Teal" and I have somewhat of an idea that I'll be using some components from Marcia DeCoster's Beaded Opulence. Or not.
I'm genuinely surprised by how much I like this necklace. Like I said before, this is usually not one of my favorite color combinations because it's too classically Autumn.
