I’ve read a number of predictions from fashion bloggers who say Pantone’s Hemlock Green from the Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Report will be popular long after summer ends. And, that’s good news for today’s featured designs.

A True Statement Necklace

Of course, I like all the jewelry I make. But every now and then, I create something that makes me say, “Dang, this girl is good!” This set is an example.

Want me? Give me a click.I absolutely love it! I love the colors. I love the style. And, I had a ball making it.

A gorgeous wire wrapped pendantThis necklace mixes things up a bit by combining a few techniques into one piece. I started off with the copper wire-wrapped pendant, complete with a chunky, yet lightweight, fair trade tagua nut bead. When I finished wire wrapping the tagua nut, I thought the pendant was cool. But it wasn’t enough.

So, I decided to weave in some copper wire adorned with a few glass faceted rounds. I loved the result.

A few days later, I looked at my fabulous pendant and decided it deserved to be surrounded by other fabulous beads. So, I framed the pendant with more gorgeousness.

Want me? Give me a click.I didn’t want to overwhelm my pendant, so I stopped about halfway along the length and finished the necklace off with black leather. The leather is secured by additional copper wire wrapped in a coiled pattern. Even the strongest baby couldn’t wrestle this piece off your neck.

Of course, I had to make a matching pair of earrings. And, I love how these turned out.

You know you want this! Get it while it lasts. Of course, this is the only one, so don’t wait.
