Mid-Week Mutterings - Peach Moonstone Necklace Lanyard

Here's another "Baroness" necklace lanyard - because I don't have the clasps on yet, I'm showing just the front. I used peach moonstone rounds, pale mauve Swarovski pearls, small disk shaped shells that vary from light peach to ivory to pale mauve shades and 4mm CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements bicones in a pale pink with tiny gold plated TierraCast™ petaled beadcaps. Those beadcaps are a real workhorse in my jewelry designs - I try to keep a couple hundred in the stash at all times.

I've done a lot of pieces that explore various design types, but this romantic, old-fashioned look is always my favorite and I keep going back to it.

My company has started an internal classifieds on our company intranet and I'm thinking about putting up an ad about my jewelry lanyards. It's free, so that's a huge plus! I'm pretty much decided to do it, just really thinking about how I want to word my ad. They allow pictures, too.

Hope all is well, wherever you are. See you tomorrow!

The word "lush" comes to mind when I see those moonstones. Lovely!

Thanks for the encouragement, Tish! Just have to figure out how I want to do it and get some pictures set up for it. It'll happen, just not sure when I'll take the plunge.

Rose, yep, I agree - the moonstones are really amazing and lush is a great description.

Welcome, Dawn (*great* name, btw) and thank you for leaving such a kind message about my pieces!

I sure hope you're right about putting in the ad at work - I've got quite an inventory of lanyards and I'd love to see them find useful work!
