Ibiza Autumn

Ibiza Autumn
It is usually around August that I receive enquiries about the latest trends in autumn colours. Usually people expect the colours to be shades of brown, grey, ochre and dark purple. In this article I would like to present another idea: The "Ibiza Autumn" collection.
Thinking about the beaches and bohemian spirit of this island I designed a number of statement necklaces and earrings using coral and amazonite gemstone.
If you have questions about the construction of these jewellery items, leave a message!
Ibiza Autumn coral necklace
Ibiza Autumn coral necklace Statement necklace with a double strand of coral twigs in three shades, finished with large red coral nuggets.
The challenge is in finishing the clasp of the necklace; it is not possible to thread the wires back so make sure that the crimp beads are firmly attached. I used a tube crimp bead which I first flattened and then doubled up. After these steps I slide a crimp bead cover over the crimp bead itself.
The following materials were used for this necklace: KR-NG001, KR-T008, KR-T002, KR-T003, DRD006, MK-SP006B, KVB002, K020A, SL016, WG004, KKR002, PNS-OC010G, KLZ-OC002A, OR-B005

All amazonite beads were taken from one and the same (graduated) strand. These strands are faceted and have a stunning natural variation of colours.
