Easy to Be-Leaf

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

I thought this leafy bail was just delightful, and when I shot it for the website - I popped a Chysocolla peardrop into and it looked wonderful. But, of course, the pear drops are sold out in the store, because what ever I really like, sells out in a heartbeat and can't be restocked. BTW - this doesn't just apply to beads, but to everything. From shoes to mascara - if I really like a product, it disappears off the shelves. Market researchers would do well to follow me around and take notes.

However, I discovered that there just wasn't that much currently in the store with the sideway hole that fit well into this lovely bail. One of the advantages I have is that I can cruise the store and look for items that match or fit, so here is my take on what goes nicely with this handsome bail. 


This is the now-history Chrysocolla drops.













This is the Mint Candy Jade - looks stunning!


















Turns out, the Swarovski 22 mm Cubist Drop also looks fab with this bail.












This Turquoise pear drop also looks great, and this is with the gunmetal finish, and paired with a gunmetal chain. The bail is a gunmetal finish over sterling silver, and the chain is gunmetal over a base metal, but the colour match is good.

For the others, I used a finished sterling chain, but for this, I took a length of chain, and added a clasp with a jumpring. Easy peasy.
