|Some summertime inspiration from the AJE team!|
The first thing that came to my mind was sunny days... and I knew it was time to finally use one of my tiny collection of Jade Scott pendants that I've been jealously hoarding now that she stopped making jewelry components. Even though the pendant is made of copper, its patina gives it more of the look of natural brass so I went that route. I wire wrapped some lemon jade and dyed agate rounds along with a couple of Czech glass beads.
On my recent trip to the Bead & Button show, I picked up a bunch of new beads from Golem Design Studio including some fun sunshine pattern lentil beads. Let the sun shine in! It's no secret that I love using Golem lentils in fun multi-strand bracelets based on a design by Lorelei Eurto, but with how many of them I just bought, I need to branch out in my design choices! I ended up making a sunshiny necklace and bracelet that could be worn alone or as a set.
