Sapphire & Silver beaded necklace
This 19 inch necklace has beads in shades of sapphire blue, silver, and black.
The center grouping features a black & blue check design, faceted sapphire blue beads, silver beads, black & blue swirled beads, faceted silver beads, deep blue beads and small black discs. The remainder of the necklace is alternating silver filigree round beads and 4x6mm cobalt gem cut beads.
I offer the option to choose your preferred closure: silvertone springring clasp, silvertone magnetic closure or silvertone toggle closure. Please indicate your choice when ordering. Please be advised that magnetic clasps should not be worn by anyone with a pacemaker.
The deep blue is one of my favorite colors and has extra class and sparkle because of the filigree and faceted beads.
What is your favorite color? Do you know why it is your favorite? Do you have early memories of always wanting to choose this color of crayon, or paint for your bedroom, or for clothing?
I have always liked blue the best. I also like pink and purple and aqua, but blue will usually be my first choice.
Did you learn to dislike a color if you were forced to wear it, either as hand-me-down clothing, or because the person choosing (maybe your mother) liked a color that you didn’t?
Several years ago (in the 80’s, I think), there was a trend of “having your colors done”. I did not participate, since as a sewer I believe I have a better than average eye for what color looks good on me. It seems to have been done as a party plan, like buying jewelry or makeup, but a person was trained to evaluate and tell you what colors looked best on you and what to avoid. I remember hearing about women who were devastated to learn that most of the clothing they owned was not in the right colors.
I can see both sides of this. There may have been and still are people who are clueless about what colors look good on them, just as some people don’t realize that even for plus sized people there is a balance between wearing skintight clothing that shows every bulge and pound and wearing a sack that is so loose it isn’t flattering. And what is comfortable as a style for one person isn’t for another one. Some people could benefit from good advice.
On the other hand, if you love certain colors and they make you smile, why should someone talk you out of wearing them? You are either naturally talented at choosing what is best for you, or your personality is strong enough to override your color choices.
