Summer Jewelry Challenge- Reveal…

New Summer Jewelry- Inspired by Morning Glory blooms…

Artisan Charlene Sevier at the Bead Dreamer has put out a “Long Days of Summer” Jewelry challenge, and today is reveal day (drum roll please…).  I hinted of my inspiration in earlier posts;  the blooms of these impossibly gorgeous 2-tone morning glories seen here & on my banner.  & here is my piece~

I’ve never worked with bright purple & greens before.

The large filigree pendant is an Andrew Thornton original~ Crown Postale series- patina finished brass with a cool European vintage stamp inlay.  Stones are amethyst “wings” and rounds, amazonite, chrysophase,  crystal, and ribbon from fellow Etsy artisan Abby&Ellie

I call this one “Rock ‘n Roll Royalty”- the regal colors of a morning glory, ready to fly,   a lil’ wild ;).

Hop on over to the blogs of the other participants to see their creations!

  2. I love purple and green together. I would definitely wear this necklace. Its light and airty and evokes summer. I am a big fan of copper and patina. You go girl. Andrea PS thanks for you sweet comments to me

  3. Stunning necklace, I love all the different elements you used in your piece. I don’t think that far out of the box most of the time I’m safely in my box, so I envy those like you that do.

  4. What a luscious design! Thank you for featuring the Crown Postale piece I made with this really lovely necklace. It honors me greatly and deeply. Thank you!

    You’ve done such a lovely job on bringing out the colors and feel of the morning glory blossoms without being too literal. All of the textures are a pleasure to take in! Nicely done, you and this piece ROCK!
