Here's another piece I created over the weekend. I love the design of the piece. It's interesting, and your eye moves around the whole piece. And I love the shape of the beads, but I'm not so sure about the color of the pink/brown mottled glass beads. The focal on this piece is a tube bead from Humblebeads. I also used a Japanese wood Ojime bead at the left. What do you think of this piece? Does it need a different color scheme?
This last piece also is giving me some trouble. I love the design of the piece. I used some new Ceramic connectors and a Raku Shell pendant both from Barbara Lewis.
The connectors on the left side of the necklace aren't laying right. They keep wanting to flip. I think maybe I need to attach them different, with jumprings maybe. And instead of wire wrapping the Golden Pyrite coins, I should just do simple wire loops.
I also think I'll have to nix the seed beaded loop at the left. I like the look of the loop but it's causing all the problems.
Here's a better look at Barbara's Raku shell. It's so gorgous, the colors go perfectly with the golden pyrite beads.
