I recently traveled to Traverse City, Michigan for a conference for work. While I was there I stopped in a delightful bead shop that I usually check out when I am in town Nawbin Beads. They have the most lovely shop.
I was really attracted to several strands of jasper and jade. They reminded me of the fall leaves combined with the beachy nudes and blues.
I purposely made several necklaces, meant to be worn layered or singly. I even tried out asymmetry on the one above, which is always a challenge for me. It actually turned out to be my favorite one.
The focals on both of these statement necklaces were what started the whole project. I simply found beads to compliment and match.
This last piece is more of a complimentary necklace, meant to be worn with one of the other two as a layer. It certainly could be worn alone as well.
And here is the entire suite! Super fun to get back to my jewelry roots. It has been a while.
