brass jump rings with Swarovski Xilion Pendants in Chrysolite Opal. I also used wire-wrapped dangles strung up with dark blue labradorite tubes to accentuate the movement in this piece. In the bracelet, I also used an African brass tube bead flanked lotus petal charms. The lotus petals are so highly polished that they dance with light when worn. I like the palette of blue and gold; it reminds me a lot of ancient Egyptian jewelry and early Renaissance frescos by Giotto. It has a rich and luxurious feel.
the tiny key charms and hook earring findings. I used Sunflower-colored Swarovski crystal rondelles with Sand Opal drops with them.
In the second pair of earrings, I really loved the shape of the tiny feather charm. I had some Amber Opal-colored mosaic Swarvoski crystal Galactic vertical pendants and thought that they went together perfectly. I dangled these from a length of chain connected to gold-plated earwires bridged by a wire-wrapped link strung up with a Sand Opal Swarovski crystal.
In the third pair of earrings, I used the 3 Circle links. I wanted to play with the negative spaces and dangled a Xilion pendant that I used in the bracelet. I also added a fringe of wire-wrapped dangles with clear Swarovski crystal bicones. I think they're very elegant and posh.
I had a lot of fun working with the components from Nina Designs. I think they work beautifully with either rough organic shapes like the ammonite in the coral branch necklace or with glittering Swarovski crystals (which I picked up from Fusion Beads). I highly recommend Nina Designs!
