I am so in love with this color scheme. Beautiful shades of amethyst beside rich shades of teal. It’s absolutely irresistible.
And, you know that Downton Abbey is my new obsession. The drama is absolutely perfect with exceptional dialogue (especially coming from Maggie Smith). Plus, there are lots of interesting characters, fabulous hats and some of the best jewelry on TV.
The Art Nouveau style of the late 19th/early 20th century was so dainty and ladylike, and the show features quite a few designs from that period (especially during Season 1). I decided to channel that era when making today’s necklace, which is part of the Amethyst Swirl Collection.
I used an assortment of glass beads in shades of amethyst and teal. The focal is a gorgeous slice of agate. I finished off the necklace with strands of gunmetal chain.
Of course, I had to make some matching earrings…
And, a cute cocktail ring…
Let me know what you think of the new designs.
