Looking for colors

Last year when I worked on my Mermaids Garden Necklace I selected an unusual color combination of copper and aquamarine to pale blue - to express an ocean theme, and I haven't expected that many people would like that palette. From time to time I play with different colors - I love it!


Looking back at the Mermaid's Garden, I wanted to try colors like those, but of other shades. I got from AuntiesBeads.com Bronze Swarovski crystal pearls, Caribbean Blue Opal Swarovski crystal bicones, and Metallic Indigo Iris Miyuki seed beads, this combination seemed to be very interesting for me!


I was eager to challenge and when I received my order, I immediately started beading. Oh, no, I wanted just to try my idea! Look at the picture, here is my new necklace. I don't know how you like it, but yesterday at the Art Activation in the Torpedo Factory Art Center (Alexandria, VA), where I demonstrated beading to public, my necklace attracted a lot of attention. I guess, partly because of colors. Now I'm thinking how to name the necklace... Any suggestions?

Великолепное цветовое сочетание, прекрасное колье! С названием сложно, конечно. Не хотелось бы отталкиваться только от цвета, так как цепочку можно делать в разных сочетаниях. Опять же-таки какой-то ярко выраженной идеи нет. В таких случаях я даю своим вещам имя. Как у человека. У этой девочки должно быть яркое, звонкое звучное имя, такое, как это колье.

About the name: it reminds me of the ocean. What about 'Mermaid' or 'Treasure of the Sea'???

Beautiful, beautiful colours! They are very reminiscent of moorish architecture to me...

I have no idea what you should name it but I think it is fabulous...the colors are so great. I love when you put something together that maybe shouldn't work together and they do. Yours do, beautifully!

Lovely color combination, Zoya!

I see something ancient-mediterranean in it.
