A couple of weeks ago at a show a good customer made the comment that many of my new pieces of jewelry were in the bright family of colors. Boy is she right, however I had this piece started at the time and couldn't even show her.
I have been missing the copper and earth tones that I have always loved to work with but I guess have been having so much fun with the bright colors I didn't realize it until she mentioned it.
This color combination in glass is one I have loved for a long time I had just never used it on flowers until recently. The amber glass looks like copper with the hints of green patina color caused but the frit.
Of course I had to make a little pair of earrings to go with the necklace. They are the same as the little dangle on the extension chain in the back of the necklace.
