Colouring In.

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!

Thanks Kelly, lets hope so!

They are lovely earrings Nia, love the colours and they look great with the lampwork :))

Thank you, Becky. I suppose the advantage of matching up with boro glass is that I have so many tones and colours to choose from, rather than a "solid" colour.

You mean my sorely neglected and frequently ignored (by me) poor little blog! Thanks Moon!
