Sitting Pretty

We try to spend as much time as possible sitting on our garden seat throughout the summer months. Lunches are eaten there, plans are made, wine is enjoyed and necklaces are made. Looking at the colour of the roses and geraniums inspired me to hunt out components in those colours.

I decided to include some turquoise after noticing how a bright blue solar lamp was making splash of colour in amongst the pot plants. It’s added just the contrast I needed to make a gorgeous combination with the rose and antique gold. Just the merest hint of marigold is in there too, in the form of some sparkling Swarovski crystals.

The 2 glass ‘nugget’ beads have been in my collection for ages – as always, beads have a mind of their own and know when they want to be used!  It really has been a labour of love and I’ve really enjoyed every moment of its creation.
