I love a challenge, and colour matching jewellery is just my favourite thing.
A customer is interested in this necklace
But she would like matching earrings to go with it. Now I can't use lampwork, as the entire set of boro beads, made by the lovely Fiona Sands, went into the necklace.
So I colour matched the glass as closely as possible using a mix of gemstones and pearls, and created cluster style earrings, which not only blend in with the necklace, but would look great as wear-alone, summer jewellery.
That was my challenge for the weekend. I hope I've succeeded!
