Aqua & Opal

by: Jennifer Tough

Earlier this week I was in the shop picking out some new beads for an inspiration project - and I just fell in love with these tiny aqua opal donut rondelles.  I need to come and get more, as I'm now looking at the remnants of the strand I have left - and I simply must have more of them. Ohhh - so many projects are brimming away!

I've combined them with copper here of course, and I kept the earrings fairly light, but these would look stunning with more wire wraps, or combined with Swarovski's or pearls. You could also make a simple matching necklace with one lovely cluster of drops. A Y-like necklace. In fact it would look fabulous to wear out for New Years!
Hmmm - yes, I need to get more of these little beauties.

These earrings are created by cutting off two identical lengths of chain, and the n wire wrapping a single bead onto each link. Again, you can fill it out and give it a more cluster like appearance by adding more beads to each chain link.
