Majestic Magenta Necklace

I don't have room to post about every piece I've made since getting back from Denmark, but I do want to include this one,- I absolutely LOVE pink but even for me this was a bit extreme! I wanted it as pink as possible, as crystal encrusted as possible and as glittery as possible! I felt sooo good when I had finished it, I just had to get it out of my system (and I might not be all done and repeat the adventure because this one sold in 24 hours flat),- MAGENTA RULES!!!!
Things like that happen when people tell me I should be more commercial and mainstream...I tend to be a spiteful little child doing the exact opposite....hehehehehehehe......;)

Of all the recent necklaces I have made, this is my personal favorite and makes me smile every time I look at it...I'm a freak for neat finishes, sometimes I spend almost more time on that than on the actual necklace but this one turned out favorable in particular. I also love the combination of silver, powder blue and champagne, not a combination I would normally go for perhaps, but I thought it worked out well in the end! I don't mind if it never sells!! :D:D

A lot has happened lately and I feel that I have badly neglected blogging in order to take care of more urgent matters...mostly health issues really, I seem to have run into some bad luck, one thing following the other,- first two rounds of the flu, then a very badly sprained foot, then the flu one more time...*sigh*....small set backs and in the grand scheme of things, watching the news around the world, I suppose I should not complain. It could be worse.

Thankfully it has not slowed down my creativity,- though I have felt a bit low on ideas, I have still managed to make a few odd new pieces that I would like to share with you all! :)

Firstly,- I ordered an obscene amount of frosted and bronze bugle beads through the bead store where I currently teach, because I thought I had lots of bright ideas of what to do with them..turned out it was a bit trickier than I thought,- there's a limit to how versatile those beads can be, but still, I did make one piece that I was quite happy with,- Crystal Cascade I called it:
