Turquoise, Fusion Coral & Aurora

Here are some more pieces from our spring jewelry collection.  These ones are in a combination of the Pantone Spring colors of Turquoise, Fusion Coral, and Aurora (yellow).  These colors to me scream summer and they remind me of a breezy and warm sunshiny day.


In case you are wondering, the piece on the far left is a hair barrette and the piece below it, is a brooch.
The remainder pieces are pendants and earrings which I haven't put together yet but will get around to over the next couple of days.  The technique used for these pieces (other than the lentil swirl at the top centre) are adapted from the mokume gane workshop I took last November from Julie Picarello.  I've been having so much fun with this technique and adapting it to my own colors and jewelry styles.  I love the "lizard tails" she taught us and have adapted that to create my new "focal bead pendants" (centre).

I will try and show you at least one more color combination of our spring collection before we get busy with our big show coming up . . .  Have a sunny day!

OMG those colours are SO beautiful and they do scream summer to me, too... I think a South Beach Florida summer. (necklace with tear drop pendant as the focal point worn with with a wisp of a bikini) I love the variety of shapes and choices in the collection . WOW!

This series of beads that you are making using Julie's techiques is getting me even more excited. Our guild is hosting Julie Picarello for a weekend retreat in Vicksburg, MS in late April and the more I see of work done in her style, the more excited I get. Thanks for sharing and for using such gorgeous spring colors!
