Wrap the wire down and around the tail of wire that you are holding. Tuck the end in with chain nose pliers.

“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and b ­ eauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” - Pantone

It’s the Pantone’s color of the year! Try adding emerald green crystals or stones to peacock focal beads if you are a little afraid of the jewel tone. By combining it with teal and warmer greens you’ll be able to pull off this trend with very little effort! Or mix emerald green with focal beads in muted stone-inspired colors. Think rich patina and zen gardens when creating pieces with emerald color gemstones. Not sure what to mix with green? Go to the source! Mother Nature offers some beautiful inspiration and color palettes featuring emerald. Search for emerald on Pinterest.com or Flickr.com for more amazing examples. Visit Pantone.com for the low down on their pick of the year and the color trends for upcoming seasons. Photo Credit: 1. Heather Powers. 2. William Warby 3. Alan Vernon 4. Dennis Harper 8

Thread both ends through the 3rd hole down on the left, in towards the left eye hole. Pass one strand up through the hole at the top of the mask, far left- second hole in from the left. Pass the other strand down through the next hole, moving to the right, at the bottom of the mask. 2. String 24 red seed beads. Pass the strand back up though that same hole. Thread the cord down through the next hole. String 21 red seed beads, pass the strand back up through that same hole. Thread the cording down through the next hole. String 4 purple and white seed beads. Using the last bead as the stopper bead, pass the cording back up through the 3 seed beads, and back through the same hole in the pendant. Thread the cording down through the next hole. String 6 purple seed beads. Using the last bead as the stopper bead, pass the cording back up through the 5 purple seed beads, and back through the hole. Thread the cord down through the last hole. String 4 purple seed beads. Using the last bead as the stopper, pass the cord back up through the 3 seed beads and back through the same hole. 11

Thread the cord down through the same hole, in the pendant, to the center of the eye. String 1 purple seed bead, and pass the cord up through the next hole, moving the right. String 1 purple seed bead, pass the cord back down through the same hole to the cente rof the eye. String 1 purple seed bead and pass the cord up through the next hole to the right.

Instead of the red seed beads, string 10 fuchsia seed beads, 12 fuchsia seed beads, and 10 fuchsia seed beads for the three beaded loops at the bottom right side. Finish the rest of the beads the same way. 6. Thread the pink ball chain through the top left hole in the pendant. Thread the red ball chain through the top right hole in the pendant.

1. Cut an 10 inch piece of 7ply teal waxed linen cord and tie it onto a 10mm jump ring, leaving a 2.5 inch tail of cord. Slide 2 czech glass rondelles on and knot, leaving the beads to move freely on a 1 inch tail. Trim just below the knot. Make a few wire wrapped Czech flower dangles to attach to the jump ring. Slide on a series of mixed media art beads in a blue to green spectrum, knotting between each. If the holes are too big for the knots, use simple bead caps to stop the beads from sliding over the knots. 2. Measure out a 5inch piece of 6mm etched Vintaj chain and knot the end of the cord from 1. onto one end of this. Slide a Czech rondelle onto the cord tail, and knot and trim as you did in step one. Create a series of wrapped loop Czech flower dangles, until you have enough for 6 to go onto each link of chain, 3 on each side of each link. Using a 10mm jump ring, attach a handmade polymer starfish charm so that it sits between the art beads and the chain section. 14


3. Measure out a short piece of 2mm link chain – roughly 0.8 of an inch. Attach this to the last link of the chain from step 2 and slide a large holed lampwork glass bead over this. Attach a 15mm Vintaj lobster clasp to the last link of the 2mm chain. It should sit just outside the lampwork bead; not tightly but with not too much slack. Your bracelet is complete!
