One of my favorite colors in jewelry is turquoise. It looks so nice with so many outfits.
I always remember one of my trips to Albuquerque. One morning, at the hotel, I woke up and turned the TV on to hear the news before going out to tour Santa Fe. Oh wow, the female anchor was wearing a stunning, super amazing large-beaded turquoise necklace over a super bold blood orange, almost red dress. It simply took my breath away. I paused to watch and strategize about where could I find a super bright orange color piece like that, anything; a blouse, a dress??? I got to have that combination.
The necklace was not a problem; I could make it.
You will not believe this but it took me almost 6 months to find that blood orange color piece. Oh, I also made the necklace; and no, is not the one in this post.
Not much to say about this collection. I was inspired by nature, during one of my walks to make the green purple necklace. Sometimes, the unexpected simple things make an impact in your brain and boom; it allows you to create a one of a kind nice piece.
Last week we had a sample of pieces that were nice enough to match outfits for parties and special occasions. Today, I am sharing a more casual collection to use during week days for work or any place else.
We are about to start the holiday season; Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year… and all parties in between. Time to get busy selecting your outfits, shoes, bags and don’t you ever forget; the jewelry to match. You want to look fabulous.
You still have time to go to your local craft store and register for a jewelry making basic class. That’s all you will need. By the time the holidays are upon us, you will have a collection so amazing, you are not even going to believe it. I will! Smile. What are you waiting for? RUNNNNNNN!
Jewelry is such an addictive hobby. Once you learn the basics, the sky is the limit. Suddenly, your brain develops all kinds of designs and bead-combinations.
I remember my good friend Robin G. She became interested in jewelry making years ago. We shared some basic principles here and there, she then took a basic class and swiftly, she became such a jewelry-making artist, designing amazing pieces, combining great colors and selecting fabulous fancy beads.
You can also do what Robin did; select a basic class at your local craft store and start making unique jewelry for you, your friends and family.
