Whiplash entry, last week :-)

The theme was color, and I wasn't at home this weekend. But I made something this weekend, and as I used colors, then it doubles as whiplash entry :-)

I made this necklace to my sister, who's Cancer - there's a small cancer charm in the chains - and the idea is to look like sand and water. It's freely after a necklace I saw in a book, the original is much bigger and very nice. I think it's an entry for a large competition or a fair or something.
I also made two pairs of earrings to my sister, one pair white-sandy colors and one pair blue, so that she can use them according to her mood and clothes. I tried making blue-and-white pair, but it didn't look nice. (Now she can also wear one blue earring and one white when she wants to mark her nationality LOL - like now, when Finland won the Eurovision Song Contest! YAY!!! LOL)

I think it's interesting how the colors work together - the classy cream and beige and the peaceful and joyous blues and turquoises. I also like very much the sea-find feeling in the piece. I have used everything that is of right color, there's real pearls and fake pearls, mother-of-pearl, seed beads, glass beads, plastic beads and sea stars, pieces of turquoise and aquamarine, colored stone, crystals and quartz, bone and everything I could find. Here's a detail of the necklace.

And here's the two pairs of earrings in close-up.

Smykkene er nydelige. Og, ja, du har rett, det var et morsomt sammentreff at vi hadde strand som utgangspunkt begge to.
