Monochromatic / Монохромно

The March challenge on Earrings Everyday is Monochromatic. Or black-and-white with a pop of color. Sometimes, beads are self-sufficient. These black-and-silver beads by Petrovna Lampwork were just that. I added some free-form Thai sterling silver spacers and emerald green Swarovski crystals. The ear wires are 925 sterling silver. That's all this pair needed. Classic elegance.
Предизвикателството за месец март на Earrings Everyday е Монохромно. Или черно-бяло с ярък цветен акцент. Понякога мънистата са самодостатъчни. Тези в черно и сребристо на Petrovna Lampwork бяха точно такива. Добавих безформени разделители от сребро проба 925 от Тайланд и смарагдово-зелени кристали Сваровски. Кукичките също са сребро проба 925. На този чифт не му трябва повече. Класически елегантен.

This is a short post so I will take the opportunity to share how busy I've been and will be in March. I did a craft show and have committed to two blog hops. I will have to miss a challenge or two 😞to prepare for them. Plus there is my personal #4weeksofmaking challenge. Meantime, spring is here!
Ще се възползвам от кратката публикация да споделя колко съм заета този месец. Участвах в базар, поела съм ангажимент за две виртуални блог-срещи (blog hops - още не съм попаднала на точен термин на български) с крайни срокове. Ще се наложи да пропусна едно-две предизвикателства 😞, за да се подготвя. Но не и собственото си - #4седмицинещоправене. А навън е пролет!

    1. I was lucky to have those beads, I had nothing in black and white but natural stone beads :) I'm glad you like my sketch - looks like sketching flowers is my thing :)

  8. Your earrings are a wonderful example of simple elegance! Sometimes we just need to step back and let the beads speak for themselves, don't we?
