Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge: Day 3...
Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge, the prompt was to create a matching bracelet and pair of earrings.
For the bracelet and earrings, I used a combination of nickel-plated Japanese seed beads, faceted iolite rondelles, and Hill Tribe silver. I don't think the picture do the iolite justice. In person, the blue-gray stones have a subtle lavender glow and a little bit of sparkle. The focal and decorative closure is a fine pewter swimming goldfish button from my family at Green Girl Studios. I used the button with a beaded loop. The lever-back earrings are relatively simple and repeat the alternating pattern from the bracelet.
