Aventurine and Moss Agate Necklace

I wanted to make a necklace for one of my friends. Sorry, once again, I cannot tell you who as she has not yet received the gift. The last necklace, by the way, (the blue and purple one) was for Donna. She’s got it now and I think I picked out the right colors for her! :}

Anyway, I had a basic color palette in mind… I just needed the beads. I borrowed some from my sis Pam, since I surprisingly didn’t have what I needed. Here’s what I came up with.

The color is slightly off in the photo…not sure why. The colors really look nice together; the have a nice contrast. Here the orange looks a bit brighter than what it is.

For this piece I used Aventurine nuggets, Moss Agate, forest green glass pearls and orange glass beads. The orange beads is what I needed from Pam. I especially love the Moss Agate. The range of colors you can find from this stone is marvelous. Here’s another shot to show what I mean.

See all of the beautiful hues that differ so greatly from one bead to the next? It’s one of my favorite Agates… and I love a lot of them! So, overall, I think it’s a pretty and clean necklace, but the color palette is a bit sophisticated. However, since I find that green (especially this many shades of green) tend to go with everything, so the receiver of this necklace shouldn’t have a hard time coordinating an outfit for it!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
