I kind of chose some colors from both pictures:
I really like the 2nd picture color palette more but I think the green is what's getting me. I'm not a huge green fan in jewelry - and this green is .... a little interesting. I like the red and the blues and even the yellow (from the first picture) and pinks. So I chose the green from the first picture and the navy, turquoise, pink and red from the second picture.
Once I saw other people making chevron necklaces, I have wanted to make my own. So this is the time:
And I also made a bracelet:
The green is definitely a softer color. The small green beads in the chevron necklace are aventurine and the larger oval green beads in the bracelet are 'green stone'. I love the flecks in them. I think it gives the beads some dimension. The toggle clasp is supposed to be a flower and leaf combo and the charm is a feather.
Here is the necklace and bracelet on. The chain for the necklace is actually much longer, but I like to wear necklaces up a little higher.
