Margie and Me - Degas' Dancers Part 2

These week's Margie and Me challenge was a real um..well..challenge. Mostly because I just never could get inspired by the color palette, and I also didn't have a lot of time to dedicate to it. I had to make an unexpected trip out of town and I was busy selling two of my stone pendants! Jasper Flower and River Rocks just made one lucky buyer's neck that much more beautiful!
Here's what I was able to come up with. It's a beaded ring and I tried to recreate the frilly look of the girls' dresses. These colors are difficult to work with without it looking too much like I-just-had-a-baby jewelry.

I'm definitely going to keep this color scheme tucked under my hat and will probably revisit it later. I don't feel like I did Degas justice and I know I've got something better in me.
I was also in two treasuries this week that were made by someone other than beadweavers!
The first is a super-cute travel treasury featuring my Road Less Traveled Pendant you can see it here.
The second is a blue-green treasury with some super-intense blues and greens. (wow, that was repetitive) This one features my Layers of Blue Bracelet and it's here.

I'd also like to take a minute to thank you guys who commented on my Quantity vs. Creativity post. It was so enlightening to hear points of view from people all across the jewelry creating spectrum. I definitely plan on addressing this more tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Finally, Persian Rugs Tutorial will be available Monday if I do my job right and thanks to all who have made my tutorials such a huge success! I'm so honored that you like my designs! Have a great weekend!
