I completely forgot that I made these pieces. I tend to go through spurts of designing/making jewelry and then stashing what I've made in a container in my little corner of the basement. The bracelets and blue necklace and white crystal earrings were made several years ago when I was going through a Swarovski crystal faze. And the purple necklace....well, I'm always in the mood for something purple. Sometimes I look at pieces that I made years ago and I think "holy cow, why did I do that. It looks terrible." But I actually still like these pieces so I have to make time to photograph and list some here and at our Etsy Shop. Two of the bracelets are listed, here's the blue crystal bracelet and here is the peridot green crystal bracelet.
It's probably not often thought of as a colour combination that works, but I absolutely love the colour combination of pink and orange. I think it's a stunning combination, a bit bold, cheerful, reminds me of summer, a mood booster - and colour does affect your mood. If you mixed the two colours together you would get pink.....and I love pink too. I look to nature to find colour pallettes to work with and sometimes I just have to open my back door. These are the fall berries of Euonymus fortunei. A happy bit of colour in my fall garden.
