Once upon a time, there was a necklace…
In addition to some of the other elements I’ve mentioned with regard to my current line of jewelry, a very important aspect of it will be color stories. There will be at least 5 different styles in the line, and probably as many color combinations: blues, reds, greens, etc.
The pieces below represent one style in the collection as well as the blue color story. I have always planned to incorporate strung beads on colored cord into at least part of the collection, as shown here:
The gemstones used are red aventurine (represents peace), Swiss blue topaz, turquoise, capped off with a facetted smokey topaz pendant as the focal point.
I am generally not a matchy-matchy person when I wear jewelry, but it can be a useful way to create it. Though all of these pieces can be worn as a set, it is not my intent.
By the way, I’m totally loving these earrings.
