Elegant Sophestication

Last week, I was commissioned to create a jewelry set to match a dress. The wearer of the dress was going to a special dinner and wanted something simple yet stunning to wear.

The dress is brown with just a touch of gold in the neckline and sleeves. The material is silk so it changed shades depending on how the light caught it.

Brown is not an easy color palette to work with. It can appear dull and lifeless if not treated well. What...oh what can I do...??

Then inspiration struck....mother of pearl beads in a brown shade to match the opaline glow of the dress and instead of using gold beads as accents, how about gold wire to loop the beads together.

Here is the complete set.......

Mother of Pearl Necklace and Earrings worked. ! This brown is definitely not dull.
The soft shine of the beads is offset beautifully by the gold wire.
 Mother of pearl complements all skin tones and creates a magical glow making it perfect for evening wear.

Needless to say, it made for one special night out !
