New Designs: Cool Blue

This is a brand new design: Cool Blue

The necklace has been inspired by the jewellery I saw in Nice, using different size links. The centre piece is a cool blue (turquoise) drop shaped catseye bead, surrounded by faceted beads in teal and blue, a few shimmery blue glass beads and blue jade beads with a pale blue glass tube and seed beads to bring it all together. There are also some twisted connectors to add interest.

Above is a close-up of the catseye bead feature bead.

The earrings match the necklace perfectly. The necklace is very simple so I went a bit more over the top with the earrings. I always try to strike a balance with my sets so either the necklace or the earrings are more elaborate so that one enhances the other, rather than one trying to outshine the other. The earrings again include the lovely catseye bead, but additionally have some real turquoise and malachite chips and filigree silver plated and pale blue Magatama beads to make them into something quite stunning.
