Speckled Eggs Vintage-day 17

Posted on Jan 17, 2011 in Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

I visited an antique shop just around our corner last year and picked up just this one thing: brass chain, old and badly needed some luster but it holds really pretty glass beads that reminded me of speckled eggs.  I would love to revisit this post come Easter because this would just be so appropriate.  I wanted to just entirely take it apart but the clasp though very old is still quite sturdy and the little brassy chains is well made, how else was it able to withstand time?  An image below of speckled eggs reminds me of these beads.

I love the mottled colors that appeared to be flecked on the beads.

I chose Robin’s eggs color paper beads with a smattering of lavender and green, I thought they complement each other really well.

The brass water lily pendant completes the look.
