Emerald Isle

"We will watch the sun set again many times - and perhaps we'll see the Emerald drop, the green flash that brings good fortune ..."  ~ -Jean pseudonym of  Ellen Gwendolen Rees Williams Rhys (Wide Sargasso Sea pt 2)




A few weeks ago, I showed you a colour swatch containing vintage emerald montees.  The cuff is now complete (including unique detail on the reverse side to compliment the overall design).  The vintage beads are spectacular - the colours of this cuff just shimmy on your wrist! This is ready for that special occasion or with Christmas coming up - stand out in the crowd! 

Design:  Caron Reid of Caron Michelle
Materials:  Vintage Emerald Baguette Montees. Swarovski Crystals, Miyuki Delica and Toho Seed Beads.
 Technique: Erin Simonetti
