Bollywood Bling for your Wednesday

Some of you may remember that I'm part of the Etsy Beadweaver's Team. Well, each month the team holds a challenge to get us off our butts and beading.
This month is Bollywood. Well, I definitely am not a pro when it comes to Bollywood, but is that not what the word "challenge" is for?
So, I sat down yesterday and created a ring to go with the theme. I call this the Beadwoven Bollywood Bling Ring.

It features some faceted glass beads in a cone shape and some brassy gold beads with a transparent blue/gold bead thrown in.
The beads are layered in the center to give it more texture and balance.

While I was working on this challenge piece, I came across this amazing designer, Rita Kumar, who creates some of the most amazing Indian bridal designs and daywear inspired by the Sari.

The last time I worked with Bollywood colors I created this pendant using one of Margie's color schemes. It was so fun working in bright shiny colors again...hhhmmm....

Sorry, I just re-read that post and it is so not put together....oh well...
