Jewelry Color Inspiration #44 & GIVEAWAY

Anyone who knows me also knows that have an obsession for stamping and for JEWELRY! I enjoy participating in other stamping challenges and want to share the fun by offering my own weekly Jewelry Color Inspiration challenge. The challenge will be posted each Sunday and will include a jewelry photo along with the link to the website where I found it.

If you want to play along, simply make a paper project (card, scrapbook page, or 3D item) that includes the colors indicated with the jewelry piece. (If you don't have the exact colors, just use ones that are similar:) Then, submit your creation to me by Saturday, July 11th at 11:59 P.M. using the Mr. Linky box at the end of this posting. You may also wish to post your photo at using the keyword JCI.

This gorgeous necklace called Sadona was created by Dee Antil Designs. The necklace exudes warmth with faceted Ruby, Mookaite, rare Sugilite, and Charoite mix with both handcrafted wire accents and Karen Hill Tribe silver. This piece also features two of Motavenda Melchizedek's lampwork beads. The entire necklace is crafted with sterling wire to link the components and then oxidized for an aged look.

The Stmapin' Up! colors from the inspiration photo are Perfect Plum, Really Rust, More Mustard & Very Vanilla; however, please feel free to use any brand & colors that are similar.

Anyone is welcome to participate in the I will be giving away a stamp set to my FAVORITE submission This week's prize is Darling Dots, a hostess set, from the Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalog. So what are you waiting for...join the fun! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I paired up the Mojo Monday sketch #94 with the colors from the Jewelry Color Inspiration #44 this week. The flower embellishment was simply made by punching three different circles in each color, crumpled for a distressed look, and put together with a filigree brad...easy peasy!
