Margie and Me - The Nautilus Part 2

In case you missed Monday's post, this week's inspiration was the Nautilus color palette from Margie's book. I really had a great time playing around with these colors this week. I realized that I would never have thought to put these colors together if it hadn't been for this week's challenge, but I must say, I do like the results.

I call this necklace The Nautilus (duh), and I took a little hint from the nautilus itself and stuck with the beautiful swirl. It really turned out to be quite an amazing group of colors, and the pendant looks great. I hung it from some simple gunmetal chain, I didn't want to overwhelm the pendant.

I hope you like it! If you played along this week, leave me a comment with your creation and I'll update this blog post with a link to your blog.

I also listed a Chunky Turquoise Ring in my shop. This was my entry for Bead Star in the stones category, and it didn't quite make the cut, so I'm sharing it with you! These are a lot of fun to wear and if you're a person that talks with your hands (like me) they tend to distract whoever is listening to you.
Have a great weekend!
