Trollbeads Design Challenge: Day 20

IMG_5892

IMG_5891Today I am enjoying wearing this combination… These greens are usually complementary tones with other colours, mixed liberally with pink, blue, purple or gold.  Today, however, they take center stage and command an entire colour theme of their own.  I was a little surprised that I had all these greens, as I don’t often see them all

IMG_5890strung together like this.  Most of the time they are “under the wire”, scattered among almost all my bracelets.  When I started to design this piece, I thought that with only a few greens in my bead bag, a necklace would be just the right length… it quickly became apparent that I could easily put together an entire full bracelet in this colour!

IMG_5889I chose “bead shaped” silvers that sit slimly on the design, but still offer a little break to create those mini colour groupings.  I’ve so enjoyed working with this type of silver over the course of this year’s challenge… it has put “paradise birds” at the top of my silver wish list.  Designs such as “Jugend” and “Carved Flowers” are so satisfyingly heavy, beautifully detailed, and yet neat and compact.  They are very easy to play into all my compositions.
