Inspired by a beautiful wintry shot of Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, I chose white pearls to represent snow with the spectacular blue sky background color for the crystals. I love the contrast of the copper colored beading wire and crimps. The glittery icy touch of the silver crimps pull together the look for this simple yet elegant design
