I have to tell you how much fun I had working on this Challenge! It speaks to me! I love color, and I had been feeling swarmed with "stuff" and not knowing what to do next. I make so many decisions for other people and organizations and I really was thrilled with someone telling me what to do. Weird, yes, but there is a certain measure of freedom in it.
So this is what I came up with. The Splash is the Red Rebellion Stone Coin bead gifted to me by my friend Staci of Staci Louise Originals. She stopped by last weekend to shop my Etsy sale via my home..... because she gets to root round in my entire stash that way :-) Smart girl :-)
In her beady friend awesomeness she came bearing gifts of fancy stones and pearls, and that big gorgeous Rebellion was one of them. I pulled out my color chips and let out a big "Ah ha! That's what I needed for this" So, Staci is Awesome...
Back on track-- I did use my own handmade ceramic beads in this piece, but true to name, they are in the Barely There part of the piece.
Lastly, the Microchip portion was made with Sesame Jasper and a Green "Marble" It was hard for me to see the true color of Microchip. It looked grey in the sample but green in it's use in the color chips' example room. So grayish green it is.
OK the Colors are, Restoration Green, Urban Midnight, and Theatre Dress.
Here it is! Urban Midnight..... I have made this necklace design before, and I have been wanting to make it in more colors. I really like doing that. Finding a design that speaks to you and making it work in different color combos.... because I am all about the color.
