I am a new designer and still have much to learn, especially in terms of the “how-to’s.” As I am learning, I have found that I at least have a knack for putting together colors, textures and elements.
This is one of my designs that I am rather fond of. It is simply a cameo placed on a gold plate brass bezel, and strung on a necklace of black double cone beads and round green aventurine beads.
I also included one brecciated jasper bead and two Swarovski beads above the cameo to tie the colors together. Beading makes me happy when I can see the final result, and I really appreciate Rena’s blog to get her online advice as well as a place to see what others are doing.
