I've been working on this one for awhile. The colors and components came together easily, but the engineering of the connections on this piece were a challenge.
Sometimes that is the hardest part of the design. Getting balance in composition, and having the piece lay correctly when worn. I designed Dancing Light exclusively for the Alaskan cruise that I'll be teaching on in September. The first one was completed last year, but I wanted to fine tune the details with this one. I made a few changes including the size of the pearl necklace and the attachment points.
The teardrop clasp which I love remains the same as do the main components.
The large Swarovski pendant in Crystal Silver Night is a stunningly beautiful color which works perfectly with the antique zinc metal beads and the palest of lavender seed bead tips.
The lacy circles fold in half showing just a peak at their glittery underside.
I spent a long time on pictures this morning, getting the perfect lighting and shots of a Beading by the Bay piece only to realize I had the file capture set to small.....and I wanted a large pixel photo work with.....back to the photo studio.
