It is Time to Vote on the Blu Mudd Design Challenge Round Two
The Blu Mudd Design Challenge is to create a necklace using the Blu Mudd Pendant provided by Moriah Betterly. The necklace that I created
features her beautiful handmade artisan green focal with blue highlights. The necklace has two strands of beads that are
connected to an antique copper chain. It is 20 inches (50.8
cm) around. It is held together with a copper oval clasp.
The blue wavy lines on
the green focal remind me of the waves in a stormy sea. The ceramic
focal is attached to the first strand with some tiny ancient copper
beads and one adventurine triangle shaped bead. The first strand has
large green triangle shaped beads and dark green round glass beads with
blue Swarovski crystals, clear round crystals and tiny antique copper
beads. I used pale blue and clear crystals to give the necklace some
more colors of a stormy sea. The second strand has blue green
chrysocolla turquoise ovals and more antique copperbeads. Both strands
come together and join to a chain.
