Last week I asked readers to share their favorite holiday color palettes for my Christmas bead giveaway. The responses were great, and almost have me wishing it was time to haul the decorations out already.
The winner of the Christmas beads giveaway is Marsspyder of Spyder Jewels. Her favorite holiday scheme is red with gold, with blue or green and gold making runner up. So, I went hunting for some festive gold and jewel tone designs as a little preview to holiday glam.
Blue and silver was a popular choice, and makes up the palette of today’s necklace. After working with some leftover Swarovski golden pearls, I was really in the mood for more of these ornament-like baubles. I paired some midnight blue pearls with lots of cobalt, white and silver to create a shimmery necklace for the holidays.
