All New Materials For a Change

Nothing vintage, old, or found objects included in this necklace project, as it is all new materials. What a shock !! I think the last time I made jewelry with all new components was before the holidays for some young ladies on my gift list.

I am not an orange person. Oh - I like it in the Fall decor such as pumpkins, foliage, dreamsicles, juice, etc., but not so much in everyday decor or jewelry. Last Fall I bought a mixed strand of semi precious stone beads and these orange ones were included. I don't know what kind of stone they are - have kind of a frosted look under most lighting. Anyone know? Just noticed one has a dark spot in it - need to see if have another to replace it with.
As usual half thru before remembered to take before pics.

Added some filigree beads, chain and a simple lobster clasp. The orange beads look darker in this picture than they actually are.

A few special effects added .....
Just another one of my "to hot to go outside" projects.
Linking up @ "Metamorphosis Monday"

What ever your plans - Have a great week!

It's very pretty Glenda. I always enjoy seeing what you are working on.

I think I can settle down and do a little bit of visiting now that we have had a week to rest here at the lake.
I think if we had waited another year we would have had to hire someone to do the house prep work. Took as awhile to rest up!! First showing is tomorrow. Fingers and toes crossed.

Orange is so popular these days. Love the necklace! It can be worn any time of year.
Thanks for being such a sweet friend!

Orange is all the rage right now. I keep trying to figure out a way to incorporate it...

Thanks so much for bringing some girly bling to my first party!

Beautiful pieces you've created Glenda! I'm not normally a fan of orange in decor either, but it is really popular these days and I have to admit I kind of like the pop of color it brings to a space.
Have a wonderful day!
