It seems the holiday season is upon us whether or not we agree that a year could possibly have passed since the last holiday season. Red bows look pretty against bright green trees, but in jewelry I am not a big fan of those traditional colors, so I started playing around withmore muted versions.
I chose cool blue greens of spruce and softer berry tones.
I added some woodsy browns to ground the colors and ended up with these:
It's always fascinating to me how the same beads can look so different when tied in another color of cord. I also like to take the same combination of beads and cord and use it in different patterns. For this one I used all three colors of cord together.
And I came up with a pattern that reminds me of a woodland plaid. And that, of course, led me to add a woodland creature (from Dreams and Elements).
Now if the woodland elves would come get these things listed in my shop, I could get on with my holiday baking!
