The results are in, and the winner of our gold and turquoise bead soup giveaway is Kashmira of Sandafulee…always in bloom! Congratulations to Kashmira, and thank you so much to everyone who joined in the giveaway.
This month I asked what your favorite metals or metallic bead colors are. Your answers were varied and unique as always. Some readers like traditional metals such as silver and copper, which are both excellent for all types of jewelry design. Others prefer metallic colors like blue and red, and gunmetal is always a favorite.
Kashmira’s favorite metals are those with an antique finish, especially gold. The addition of a patina to metals adds a little bit of mystery and romance to any design, so I was inspired to collect some pretty metallic jewelry and a few feminine finds.
Do you have a favorite fairy tale romance? What bead colors or materials would you use to capture it in jewelry?
