Jewelry Color Inspiration #44 Submissions & FAVORITE

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 JCI44 was posted last Sunday and included a jewelry photo, color swatches, and my card along with the link to the website where I found it. I'll be posting the Jewelry Color Inspiration #45 right away, so come back!

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, similar shades from other ink brands are welcome. Click here to go back to the JCI44 posting and view all of the amazing submissions!

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!

Paper: Perfect Plum, Really Rust, More Mustard, Vanilla Naturals & Very Vanilla CS

The JCI44 FAVORITE is Andrea Roose from Germany...Congrats, Andrea! I had a lot of trouble picking which ONE of your JCI44 submissions was my favorite because I love them, meany, miney, moe...I pick this one! The heat embossing and background stamping with the fabulous Top Note and hand-cut flower are phenomenal!

This week's prize is Darling Dots, a hostess set, from the Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalog. All of the JCI44 submissions were so beautiful...thanks to all of you for sharing your creativity and talent!
