I hunkered down last night to finish off this jewelry set. I am really into this coppery-rose-gold colored seed bead right now. It's quite dazzling with the crystal-colored bugle beads and larger faceted seed beads.
I did have a difficult time deciding whether to keep the necklace with just one pearl (which is the clasp) or add a second one. I posted the question to Instagram and Facebook last night. The official tally is 15 people preferred 1 pearl, 11 people preferred 2 pearls. Honestly, it's easy enough to add the second one back on for a buyer, you can see what it looks like (on me, in a bad photo late last night working) at the bottom of this post.
Hexagon Necklace $120.00
Hexagon Bracelet $75.00
Hexagon Earrings Plain $45.00
with Pearl Drop $48.00
I also had a difficult time deciding between earrings with a pearl or earrings without, so I made both because they don't take as long as the necklace does. I'm trying to beef up my jewelry stock since I have a show the last weekend in July (29th and 30th) called Traverse City Higher Art
. It's at the ECCO Event Center, 121 E. Front Street, Traverse City, MI. The show runs 10am-6pm both days.
