Deco Iris- Beaded Jewelry Ensemble

necklace stitched with seed beads and vintage buttons

The inspiration for this ensemble were the marvelous iris colored vintage glass sew-ons I found at a marvelous shop along the Laguna Beach coastline. These along with vintage and new glass beads, buttons and dangles helped to create a design reminiscent of the 1930's. I wore this ensemble to the Jazz Festival held in the Casino Ballroom on Catalina Island. I fit right in with the Deco decor!

The necklace pattern is an adaptation of my "Leap Frog" pattern. The earrings are made from vintage glass sew-ons and dangles stitched into a design with seed beads.

The first bracelet "Nailheads" is stitched with glass sew-ons and seed beads.

The second bracelet "Linked Jewels" is an original pattern using a right angle weave stitch with buttons and beads.

The third bracelet "Goulash in Glass" is made from the leftover beads from both the necklace and the other two bracelets.
