Margie and Me - La Boca Part #2

Okay, I totally cheated this week. I really took a lot of liberty with Margie's color scheme, but the point is inspiration, right? :)
This is the result of my inspiration from La Boca. I call it Carnaval Pendant. It's a much lighter version of the green/blue/pink color scheme. The colors are brighter, as if they were holding a Carnaval celebration in La Boca. Hey, Margie said to add lemony green!

It's simple, but really makes a statement. I used turquoise rounds, czech faceted glass beads and seed beads (of course). It looks great on a simple silver chain.

I loved it enough to make a second version in purple!

I also made a new version of Esmeralda's Ring. I sold out of the Peacock version this week, and I won't be able to make another Peacock version unless I can find some more of the orange center beads that I need.

I've also been working on some bead embroidered pendants. I call this one Jane's Pendant.

And this one is called Sea Star.

All these have been added to my Etsy shop, and I've also taken a few things out of my shop. My style has slowly been evolving, and I hope that that's reflected in my newer pieces.
Enjoy your weekend!
