Tangerine



I was inspired by this photo on Pinterest and when I found these tangerine Czech beads in my bead stash (I recently blogged about organizing my entire bead stash, check it out here), I knew they would be perfect to pair with these gorgeous Czech flower beads. I made the teardrops out of PMC3 and used waxed linen cord to tie it all together.

I thought Tangerine was a perfect name for these because the little Czech beads look like tangerines and Tangerine by Led Zeppelin (one of my favs!) came on my iPod during the creative process. Ha! Meant to be.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fab weekend!

  1. Gorgeous! I love the pattern on your silver drops--the circular impressions are so nice together with the sunburst pattern inside the Czech flowers. And I love that tangerine-turquoise combo! I love the addition of the slightly brighter turquoise cording. I like that you wrapped the top, too, rather than just using a jump ring, adds extra interest. Lovely!

  2. That is one good color combo. Those tangerine beads remind me an awful lot of some tiger-eye beads I have and I always struggle a little with which beads to pair them up with. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Your jewellery designs are beautiful and there is nothing better for your inspiration than nature.
    The colours are beautiful and you have created some unique and unusual handmade earrings designs. It is lovely to see some unique earring designs and not the usual run of the mill designs, you are very creative
