Turquoise necklace

According to world-renowned fashion and color expert Pantone, Turquoise is the color of year 2010 and I simply love this color. Here is one of the Turquoise necklace I recently designed.

The gemstones used in the necklace are Turquoise, Agate and Aventurine along with Silver. Faceted button Turquoise beads are enhanced by round Agate and the Silver fringes on the triangular Agate pendant add the mystic look to the necklace.

A simple yet bold necklace...

First necklace set I sold

While uploading jewelry pictures on Flickr and Picasa, I came across a picture of the first necklace set I sold and took a trip down the memory lane.

From Menka's Jewelry

A simple set made with green olive pearls attached to a silver chain like a bunch of grape hanging from the vine. It was my first wire work project and took me more than two hours to wire wrap each grape :) I showcased it at my sister in-law's house who had invited her neighbours and friends...and the first friend who stopped by picked this set. It was the right kind of green she was looking for and was very happy to buy it. I was pleasantly suprised but extremely happy to have sold my first!

Since then I have made many sets...but this set will always have a special place in my heart!

Spring Orange

The color Orange has a special place in my life...may be because it was 'the' color at the time of my wedding or may be because the three men in my life - my husband and my two sons - have 'Sun' hidden in their names :)

My facination for orange reflects very well in the color scheme used for the necklace set here. This set is the first design I have made for Spring 2010. Fresh water pearls in different shades of orange and lilac give it a soft look and yellow Swarovski cubes make it vibrant. An oblong mystic Agate bead is the focal piece of the necklace and the metal used is sterling silver.
