Sand and Sea

I've got a really long weekend ahead of me with hopes of creating several new pieces for my next show, coming up May 7th. I had some beautiful Blue Opal nuggets that were screaming they were perfect for this year's spring color palette. The beautiful blue, yellow and green opaque and semi-transparent beads have a light and airy quality. I decided not to mix them with any other beads, they are beautiful standing alone. I only mixed the chunky nuggets with hand-made silver links. I made a variety of pieces - 6 pairs of earrings, 2 bracelets, and a wonderful statement piece, a three-strand choker length necklace (above).
