Now I need to create matching clasps and I may have neck wear yet! The black beads in between the clay beads are some onyx I have had around for a while just waiting for a project. I think that the bronze color looks good with the black. I am also waiting for an order of 2 mm Buna Cord and rubber o-rings to use instead of this thin leather cord. It just isn't substantial enough.
I am a little disappointed in myself as far as color goes. I can't seem to get there yet. I make Maggie Maggio's color scales and they look fantastic but I cannot seem to translate them into jewelry. I think I have worked in metal for so long that making the transition to color is harder than I thought.
Weird considering I was a painter for so many years and color was always my thing. I think perhaps because the jewelry I wear myself is always metal with perhaps a bead or gem. But not all color all the time.
I'll get there. I am sure of it.
