School Colors

IMG_3483Not my school, either high school or college, but probably someone’s school.  I am sure purple and yellow belong to an institution of higher learning somewhere.

Once again messing around with the stash, looking to create something simple yet colorful.  I think this necklace is a rousing success.

It’s a mix.  The striped / polka dot beads are hand made from Africa.  I don’t think they are antique trade beads, but rather ones from somewhere like Soul of Somanya, where making the beads helps village women keep their families together.  Click on the link to learn more.

The rest of the beads are a mix of 6ºs and large matte druks.  To keep the purple going, I used colored jump rings with the the lobster clasp.  It’s even adjustable!

Kinda fun.  Kinda funky.
