Moon Garden Challenge Reveal: Geri Colgrove...

These pieces were made by Geri Colgrove.  Here's what she had to say about them:  "I've titled this series, Dance in the Moon Garden.  The beautiful mystery focal was cold connected to a decorative metal disk with tabs, a white flower bead, and iridescent beads."

"The large white beads were taped with copper tape and soldered with silver-colored solder for added charm."  

Here's a close up of the focal.  

Geri also made matching earrings and a bracelet.  Here's what she had to say about them:  "On the bracelet, I used the peach colored shell-like disk as the focal, along with two of the enhanced white beads.  On one side I added a brass chain of peach colored rhinestones for sparkle, and on the other a silver chain for balance.  The earrings are made with moonstone looking beads and iridescent leaf beads, which is also used on the bracelet.  I used a decorative silver toggle.  This definitely was a challenge as I do not normally use this color combination.  Thank you, Andrew Thornton for this challenge!"
