Hi everyone! It’s Melody here – I am so happy to welcome you to my first Just Bead it blog!
This week I have been inspired by a couple of things...the collection of gorgeous beads on my desk (!!!) my Mum’s Birthday and also the fact that we are finally moving towards some cooler weather here in Queensland after such a long, hot summer!
These three elements all led me to create this beautiful jewellery set using colours and shades of autumn.
I don’t often work with gold tones, although I do love them. However, these happen to be some of my Mothers’ favourite colours - and the gold just compliments the lustre of the pearls so very well. With the addition of red, they make a warm and vibrant combination.
My style is a little eclectic; however I do appreciate a minimalist style as well. I like playing around with different textures, styles and colours when I bead. This can be time consuming... but it is always fun. The end result this time, is a pair of earrings and matching set of three bracelets that can be worn stacked together or separately for a simpler style.
I am not sure about you... but I seem to have an ever growing collection of bracelets and I really love being able to mix and match.
So - Happy Beading! I hope my little set inspires you to create something special this autumn!
