Color Inspiration - Florida Vibes
by Nancy Chase
Aahhh, there is nothing like a bead show on a Sunday morning to get the creativity flowing. I took this delicious picture of beads, with permission from the vendor, of course, as inspiration for this project.
The glimmer of the strands, the cold feel of the chunky beads, and delightful colors sparkling against the jewelers lights created a beautiful mix of shape and texture. Bright green strands, shades of pink, multi-colored knotted threads all contribute to the eye candy that is every bead show. This photo is packed with possibilities for influencing wire jewelry designs.

This multi colored dyed shell beaded necklace is finished with a handmade wire "S" clasp. 20-gauge rose gold half hard wire, round nose pliers, wire cutters, and a hammer fashion this simple fastener. The beads are drilled so as to slightly stack upon each other giving a layered appearance - a little different from straight bead stringing.
Bringing out the color palette of greens, pinks, yellows, and blues, this necklace makes a statement for traveling this winter. Thinking of warmer climes, and sunnier skies - if only in our minds. Also a bright accessory to wear for the holidays.
