Handcrafted Beaded Jewellery and Accessories

I’m Blue and Brown all over…

An internet group I’m in has set a ~ Creative Color Combo Challenge ~ each participant is put into a team of 4 members and given a set of colors.  Then between the team we have to choose 2 types of beads and the metal we want to use. 

The bead choices were – Lampwork, Polymer Clay, Freshwater Pearls, Lucite, Gemstones, Czech Glass or Swarovski Crystals.

The metal choice is between – Silver, Gold, Pewter or Copper

So my team was given the Color Combo of Blue and Brown.  We chose to use Czech Glass and Swarovski Crystal with Silver-Plated metals. 

So this is what I’ve come up with…

I have used Smoked Topaz Swarovski Crystal bicones, Cobalt Czech Glass faceted rounds and Silver-plated metal beads.  I’ve not used this color combo before and am quiet happy with the way this set turned out.  Much prettier in reality.

I’ll list it once the challenge is finished.
