Hi, I have 2 necklaces in orange to show you today. The first is bright orange colored glass beads with Black, bronze &  light wood heshi beads. I started out to make a single strand, but it grew. I wanted a bright color combination for a woman who is bold.  The first strand is orange ribbed tubes and hearts in sets of three with alternating centers. Between the threes there is a wood heshi , 2 matte bronze size 6 seed beads, a black bicone, 2 more seeds &  a wood heshi. The center focal is a wire wrapped black briolette, one of the orange tubes, &  a wavy hemityte flat round. The middle strand is seed beads. The inner strand has the sets of 3 that are 3 of the same hearts &  tubes. This time I used a bronze bicone &  black seeds. All of the strands are connected  by a black connector . The top is gunmetal rolo chain. There is a gunmetal lobster clasp for a closure. The second necklace is also on chain. This time it is gold plated. Both strands are made of  small red sardonyx coins spaced with size 6 seed beads in transparent orange &  topaz &  mother of pearl tubes. For the center I wire wrapped a triangle shaped piece with craft wire. The strands are connected with a pewter 2 to 1 that is gold plated. Now I'm going to work with a different color.
