Jewelry making #13

Okay...I've boiled it down to one new design, at most, per day. That does not mean one finished new design per day. It takes at least the rest of the day to simply wear the piece.

Version 1.1 of my green piece failed the wear test. I tried it out with 2 large oval sea-green Indian glass beads in front. It looked great but the oval beads were too heavy. They felt fine at first, but after wearing it for, say, six hours, the beads started to feel too heavy. So the oval glass beads are out.

I tried it again today...using various green beads in front. I tried out some nice square cloisonne beads, some oval (genuine) turquoise beads, the green glass leaf beads, eh...what I ended up with, were two of the sea-green Indian beads, but smaller round ones. I'm wearing it right now.

If I like it well enough, I will probably make a blue version...and maybe a lavender version.
