Today we’ll take a peek at the second part of the the remarkable collection of CN.
Isn’t this palette delicate and pretty? Soft, buttery yellows and periwinkle blue feel like a warm, gentle Summer day. So many of my favorite beads have found their way onto this design: “Blue Desert”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Carved Flowers”, “Jugend”, “Chalcedony”, “Endless” and “Beige Bubble”… it’s a dream bracelet!
CN’s “Blue Desert” is a particularly lovely example of this very changeable design… very light, with lots of gold sparkle and a hint of green, yellow and even lilac. Just like the “Cool Dusk” and the “Azure Bubbles’, it helps to further tie the pale blue and yellow palette together… “Waves” and “Conch” add a couple of additional warm weather notes… truly, it feels like the “Endless Summer” bracelet.
Imagine how much discipline it must take to keep her all-white bracelet so pure in it’s design. I’m sure I would have caved to temptation and added a silver mountain or two – but isn’t wonderful that she hasn’t – it’s stunning, simple and perfect.
You’ll spot two rare beads in this composition: a pair of icy, Switzerland World Tour “Rock Crystals”. She has centered a “Winter” dangle on the bracelet, and then balanced pairs of the “Diamond Bead, white”, “Milky Quartz”, “White Stripe”, and “Rock Crystal”. The composition is centered with a pair of stoppers, so it always stays in place.
Finally… her most recent creation:
Perfect for Autumn, this leather and amber design is warm and casual yet sophisticated. CN has assembled an array of golden toned ambers of all different shapes, sizes and textures. Don’t miss the gorgeous one at left – with all the glittering inclusions and the cool, boxy shape… She added a “Tigers Eye” and a “Golden Quartz” for additional interest. An inspired touch is the addition of “Wildcat” and “Organic Bubble”, which each contain a hint of teal, offering a beautiful, complementary note.
Thank you to CN for sharing her lovely creations with the readers of the blog…
PS. TWO SLEEPS! So exciting.
