My jewellery designs constantly evolve – I am always trying new ideas and styles. My jewellery design ideas are very often prompted by the many metal findings and gemstone beads scattered in front of me – when I look at them all, they begin to combine and form patterns in my mind. Where others possibly see chaos on my workstation, I see endless possibilities……
This turquoise howlite and antiqued silver on black leather necklace design is brand new. It is quite different to my signature tried and trusted jewellery designs. I completed the gemstone and silver portion first and just for fun, I then asked my Facebook fans what they thought I should string it on – and they all re-inforced my first thought that black leather cord was the right choice for this design.
One of the Facebook comments was that this design would also make a lovely bracelet. Absolutely! Whilst at one of my suppliers last weekend, I was lucky enough to find smaller antiqued silver tubes, so I was able during the week to design a matching bracelet to make this a set.
What gemstone do you think would look good in this new design?
