It's time for the
Black and White Jewelry Design Challenge
hosted by the ever-so-talented Sally Russick with
The Studio Sublime!
Those of you who know me or have followed my blog for awhile know that I LOVE Black and White Jewelry!
You can check out my post here that I did when I got back from Italy last fall with mention of the B/W trends to come and see a couple of other pieces I've done in Black and White here, too!
When Sally, who's also the host of the fantastic
Focusing on Life: 52 Photos
weekly photography challenge I participate in each week, sent out a call to participate in her Black and White Jewelry Design Challenge, I signed up in a heartbeat!
Here's what Sally's instructions were for us:
Design a piece of jewelry that uses only black and white in the design.
It can be elaborate or minimalist but only in black and white.
Exceptions To The Rules: 1. wire, metal or chain in silver, copper, brass, bronze, white or black can be used. 2. crystal or crystal AB color beads can also be used to ACCENT the piece.
I kept it pretty simple, but this is what crept out of my mind and through my hands.
I'm not sure why I enjoy Black and White Jewelry so much.
Maybe because it's 'safe', as I call it.
It goes with everything, you can't really go wrong, color-wise, using black and white.
Or maybe it's the mystery of black, the purity of white, and the contrast of the two.
It catches your eye.
It's dramatic. It's got flair.
It's just pretty!
Thanks Sally for creating a blog hop that has flair and drama! It's been a blast creating Black and White Jewelry!
Now, hop along down the list of participants below and check out all the Black and White jewelry they have created for this challenge - I'm sure it'll be an eye-pleaser!
Until Next Time, Peace, Love and Creating in Black and White! Cheers, ~Shel~
|I was in a "60's Mod Mood" designing these black and white hoops and ovals|
that I created using sterling silver wire and black and white seed beads.
They're fun,...and they feel good on.

white freshwater cultured pearls, faceted clear quartz
crystals and moonstones on some Black C-Lon Cord.
