All beads, and most of the findings, in this set are from the contents of the February 2021 Bargain Bead Box subscription. I mixed the small aqua rondelles with the crackle agate that contains coordinating shades of aqua and other neutral tones. I like how the crackle agate picks up some of the warm brown of the copper findings with its small dark brown inclusions. I would have added daggers to the bottoms of each strand on the earrings, but I did not have enough. Fortunately, I was able to include the smaller copper drops on each end, since they were included in the box contents.
The February 2021 Bargain Box featured many items that had a teardrop, or drop-like shape. Since the faceted teal quartz was one of the focals, I built a necklace and earrings set around it. The top is wire wrapped, and includes a loop that is strung onto a longer strand of chain, and embellished with tiny antique copper drops. The shorter strand contains coordinating round quartz beads, and the crystal briolette drops. Chandelier earrings, with coordinating beads and chain, complete the set.
This piece is one of my favorites of the month. I created striped “bead caps” with 11/0 Miyuki Delica and 15/0 seed beads to embellish the tops of the spike agate pendants. One pendant hangs slightly higher than the other off of a front toggle clasp closure. Coordinating glass leaves hang gracefully from the front portions of the knotted sections, and continue to the top of the pendants.
