As promised, here is a look at my Santa Lucia that I will teach on Thursday of Bead and Button. I've taught this enough times to understand that it is a really doable project that results in a really pretty necklace.
I've seen many different color combinations and I'd love to make them all! For now there are these four with the intent to do one or two more colors, we'll see.
There are only a few of the Topaz left as both the antique brass and dark green pearls have been discontinued. But I've got a really pretty light green and vintage gold one in the works (the green is also discontinued, but I have some inventory!)
Occasionally there is a design which I want to make in every possible color combination, this is one of those! When I originally designed it the Swarovski coin pearls did not exist….my friend Tracy who took this class at Beading by the Bay made the platinum color way to wear to her daughters wedding. It is truly a wedding piece done in these colors perfect for the mother of the bride or the bride!
