The inspiration for the Pretty Palettes challenge this month are some amazing photos of dresses for which we are to design red carpet-ready jewelry.
Always up for a challenge, I headed to my local Michaels in search of stunning sliders and crystals to create some jewelry fit for the Oscars. But...I got there at the end of a sale, and it was pretty bare. There just weren't enough strands to create in the lovely jewel tones of emerald, ruby and sapphire that Erin picked for this theme. So, I found another color - amethyst - and went with that.
The result is a more vintage style, possibly more Downton Abbey than Hollywood.
Here's the necklace:
I really liked these amethyst sliders, so I made three pieces, including one that is super easy. It's a ring. All I did for this is glue a filigree ring band to the back of a slider.
Happy Creating! Take a look at the reveal and see all the fabulous jewelry creations!
