New 2013 Jewellery Design – Turquoise Howlite & Silver on Black Leather

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.

I now plan to work with the same design using different coloured gemstones – red coralblack onyx, cherry quartz…..

What gemstone do you think would look good in this new design?
