I’m not completely thrilled with how the pink looks in the design. As with many lined finishes, the magatamas look a lot darker lumped together in the package than they do spaced out in a design. I intentionally used all-black for the outer edge of the chevron chain in anticipation of this, but I was still hoping for a bit more color. Still, there’s something about the very pale pink set into the totally neutral beading that works. I think it will look even better when worn than it does in photos.
The previous week’s collar with a trio of daggers at the center also turned out really well. I’m definitely going to keep the design in mind for future projects where I want to incorporate larger accent beads. The long magatamas are not my favorite accent for the collar edge, though. I do still have quite a few that I could use, but I think they’ll be passed over for a while until I’ve explored other possibilities.
