Working on Samples for Fall Classes

Moonlight and Shadows freeform beaded necklace & supplies for another
Last week I visited Fusion Beads to discuss class ideas for Fall 2013 and pick up supplies for new samples.   I brought along my Moonlight and Shadows necklace as a jumping off point for the design discussions.

Mel liked the idea, and she and I had a great time selecting a color scheme and components.  We settled on sort of a fall frost color scheme working with a deep ultramarine blue, silver and champagne seed beads, Swarovski crystals and antique copper accents, including a beautiful copper focal in place of Jeannie Dukic's lovely Gin Blossom in my new design.

The process reminded me of the Bead Soup Party in that I wasn't the only one making design decisions regarding my 'ingredients', but rather working with Mel to come up with the right mix.

Think this may be my next project, now that I have every thing all nice and picked out.
