Jasper's Gems Colour Palette Design Reveal!

(Apologies for lateness, I had this set to post automatically in the wee hours of the 31st and then forgot to check. Clearly I do not know how to use technology properly, doh! Better late than never though.)

Today is the day for my first ever reveal of a blog hop challenge and I am inappropriately over-excited about it! The challange was to create a unique piece of jewellery based upon a given colour palette. Here's the palette I chose:

 


I mainly swing between using seed beads and polymer clay and at the moment I'm having a bit of a mukume gane kick in polymer clay so I chose to create some pendants, and here they are:

I decided there wasn't quiet enough of the turquoisy colour came through so I popped a pair of fancy postage stamps on the back, one of which looked very much in keeping with the colour scheme:

I'm so pleased with them that I'm going to keep one of them and either gift or sell the other - hence I haven't actually finished either off as a necklace yet because I can't decide which to keep! In a day or so I'll post up the method I used to create them.

I had so much fun doing this! But since it's a holiday weekend I won't be free from family to actually blog-hop until tonight or tomorrow. Can't wait to see what the other participants have created!

Be sure to have a look see at what everyone has done:
