Color Play

I finished my Battle piece this week. Or, at least I THINK I finished it... some tweaking may be required between now and May 11th, which is when I scheduled a professional photo shoot to immortalize the piece.

Today I moved onto something that has languished in my project graveyard for at least a year. I've put off starting it because I want it to be a statement piece and up until now it seemed like it was going to be a "big project". That is, until I made my Battle piece, which is a heck of a lot bigger than anything I'd envision before!

I dug out the box of supplies I'd set aside and got to work.  So far, it is a symphony of subtle colors in bronze, gold, teal blue, and olive green. The focal bead is a glorious Labradorite teardrop cabochon which shimmers with all of those colors I mentioned.  I foiled the cab before glueing it down and those colors shoot right out of the stone now. Wow. 


My current plan is to flank the center stone with gray mother-of-pearl beads and seed beads. I also would like to incorporate some lovely blue and green dyed pearls a friend gifted to me last Fall.  When I laid the pearls down near the work this morning, I felt all sorts of warm sparkly feelings.  It's going to be a gorgeous collar when it's done.


Stay tuned...

At a current price of over $3,600, it is several times more than Marcello C. largest seller, the sub $1000 Nettuno 3. You do have to consider the price of a rolex replica sale Daytona too, and the fact that a Marcello C. is a finely made replica watches uk, with little comparison. When you hear the Rolex name, several things probably come to mind. Expensive and prestigious are probably among them. In America, the idea that if you become successful you need to buy a Rolex is common place and readily accepted. When I meet people, I always take notice of the replica watches sale that they wear. Among such people are doctors for example. Not that I meet so many doctors, but I have recognized that almost all of them wear a rolex replica sale. The funny thing however, is that the age of the rolex replica uk seems to be commensurate with their age. Meaning, it looks like each of them bought the replica watches uk sometime after finishing medical school.
