Beadwork - Bronze Age

Mixed metal jewelry is still a trend in fashion. I have used this as a basis for the colour selection for these two pieces.
This collar uses a layered netting technique from the Xhosa tribe of South Africa. I used three different bronze seed beads, a metallic bronze, a bronze lined black diamond and a bronze lined crystal. It looks like a blending of three different metals. This design is by Kara Jacob and was in the August issue of Bead and Button.
This bracelet of bronze waves from the October of Bead and Button and is designed by Cindy Caraway. I used the same colours I used in the colour. The only differnce is that the bronze lined crystal are 8s which help to create the waves.
