ArtBeads Blog Partner Challenge - Large Resin Roundels

Music is a big part of my life, and a huge source of my inspiration. One of my favorites is Andreas Vollenweider. Each of his songs tells a story without using words. This morning while listening to Morgana Palace and I see the necklace in my head. I see her dancing on the sand with a bonfire burning in the back ground. It is a celebration.

The focus of this necklace is the Large Resin Roundels from ArtBeads. I love these beads. They are so bold and eye catching. The beauty of the resin beads is their weight. They are so light!! You can really bulk up a necklace or use them as focals for a piece and never have to worry about the jewelry being to heavy or uncomfortable.

Here I have used the purple and orange beads capped with copper as the focal of the necklace. Copper jump rings attached to copper links make the chain, and are accented with green spider cubes, topaz glass druk beads, rainbow carnelian squares, Czech glass and Swarovski crystals.

I love the copper bead caps on these beads. They accent them perfectly and make them look like little lanterns.

I want to dance in the sand when I wear this!

Here is the song that brought on the inspiration
