I recently received an awesome package from the folks at Fusion Beads as a part of their blog partner affiliate program. I got a big bunch of super sparkly Swarovski crystals! The fun thing about this set of Crystals Mixes* is that the Fusion folks grouped them in cool color combinations to correspond with the 2012 Pantone color trends! How neat is that?
I used some of mine to make the necklace above, with one of my ceramic pendants and some C-Koop enamel accents and clasp. I used all the colors in the mix for the necklace, and then I used some of the extra cool colored beads to make the bracelet below.
