Analogous - Blue-Violet By Jen Judd!

Jen Judd has done it again--- Another Gorgeous entry into our color challenge!Here are a couple bits from Jen's Blog--
I went with the violet and blue analogous color scheme with this eclectic mix of beads. Plus, I created my own wire-worked links to add a little bit more interest to the asymmetry...
And check out this list of materials used in the necklace--
- Lovely big "mystery designer" porcelain focal with a great blue-violet finish
On the Blue Side:
- Navy glass ovals (from a bead swap with a friend)
- Blue spotted Kazuri bead (from Off the Beading Path)
- Denim blue lapis square pillows (from Potomac Bead Co.)
- Navy leather finished with sterling crimp ends (from Artbeads)On the Violet Side:
- Dyed purple rough-cut agate nuggets
- Amethyst rectangles & nuggets (from Michael's)
- Blue-violet agate ovals& violet simple cut stones(from Potomac Bead Co.)
- Lampwork glass disks (from HMB Studios)


  1. Thanks so much!! And, I'm happy to report that I've found out the focal bead artist's name: Bill Batts. The shop owner says he was from North Carolina at the time. I just did a quick search but didn't come up with any results...so, sorry I can't make any referrals! :)

  2. What a pretty combination! Brava!
