These chalk turquoise nuggets have an irregular shape and lean towards the green side of turquoise. I paired them with bamboo coral, which are shaped like gem chips. I like turquoise and coral together.
Also in the mix are labradorite rondelles and swarovski vitrail bicones. Then I made some earrings to match.
A while back, I found these black enameled filigree disks. I'm not always sure if I'm using a component in the manner it was intended, but then again, I'm not sure if it really matters. I made several brooches with these little filigrees. The first photo shows the brooch with fuchsia rhinestones and cream pearls.
This one was done with all green.
White and red. When I used seed beads rather than perfectly round beads, you can see the thread a little more.
This last one has a red beaded center and heart shaped rhinestones. I think I'd like this one for Valentine's Day!
