To add some texture and color, I incorporated a few 
mixed tourmaline gemstones and aquamarine.

I rarely design such an earthy necklace, but for 
some reason I've been drawn to the color green.

Does this happen to you? Does a certain color take hold of your 
imagination where you start craving it in all that you do?

  1. it's funny, as soon as i opened this, i thought how different this was for you... i love it... i love the stones, hand tied on silk... i love the kyanite tiles and the way you added other stones as accent...it works so perfectly with the firefly...the shimmering stone evoking the mystical light of the firefly... and green is always such a beautiful color - esp. that one... i do get pulled into color - and since i use it so sparingly, it can become somewhat of a focus...
    have a wonderful friday -

  2. Before I got to your description "earthy green'.. I had thought of those words immediately.. Green is one color I am attracted to as well as black, brown, grays... As in symbols, awhile back dragonflies attracted my attention... You definitely know my feelings on sea turtles and dolphins... When I had my pond, it attracted dragonflies- and the colors were awesome... I am so glad I was able to capture their image...
    btw, this necklace is beautiful.

  4. Oh my yes! I get stuck on a color for awhile. And I do have an inordinate amount of green beads. I think that because it is the most prevalant color in nature I must have a lot of it in my stash! I am drawn to teals and turquoise lately. Enjoy the day!

  5. Thanks ladies! I had so much fun working with one of your favorite colors. I've been treasuring those kyanites for so long, but I just couldn't figure out what to do.

    Christine, gosh your pond sounds simply lovely. Just imagining little dragonflies flitting around the water makes me feel a little more serene today. Thank you!

    Lorelei, you are too funny! I've always believed you are one of the people most open to exploring new colors and textures. Your designs are always stretching me.

    Erin, teals are where I get stuck the most! I have to hold myself back sometimes. Hope you have a lovely green nature weekend :)

  6. Mary Jane, you are always putting into words what I can't seem to express. That's it the shimmering, mystical light of the stones connect me to this notion of the dragonfly/firefly :) Thank you, wishing you a blessed weekend!

  7. If you take a look at my bead collection, you can see what color was calling to me at any particular time. It's weird, because even though I don't use a lot of pink... I always tend to think I should challenge myself by using more and therefore end up with lots of pink beads that I may or may not use in the future. Ha ha ha!
