New Beaded Necklace: Sugar Plum Fairy

Every other year or so, my husband and I will attend the local Nutcracker Ballet show. It's a beautiful ballet and perfect introduction to the surprise, excitement and beauty of the upcoming holidays. Personally, I've never professionally danced although when I was young I'd stand for hours on end at the local dance studio watching all the girls dance -wishing I could be one of them. Alas, it never happened. But to this day I still love the beauty and magic of the Nutcracker -the dancing snowflakes, the land of the sugar plum fairy, clara, the Nutcracker, well, the whole thing!

Sugar Plum Fairy Ruby Quartz Natural Ruby Pave Gemstone Beaded Necklace

When shopping recently at a bead show I came across the most beautiful natural ruby gemstones and knew I had to have them. It wasn't until I 'accidentally' set them next to my ruby quartz gemstones that the design immediately came to life. Once again, I dropped everything to work on this design and I added sterling Pave' style stardust beads that give the illusion of fairy dust floating in the midnight sky, as Clara danced.

I have tried everything I could think of to get the best picture of these stunning and beautiful gemstones, but I just couldn't wait any longer to intro the piece. I'm like a kid in a candy store...when I love a design so much I just can't wait to share it with everyone. I'll still be working on a better picture but trust me, in person, this necklace and matching earrings are beyond words -so feminine, so beautiful...

And because I love sharing my designs so much, I'm making Tuesdays -Two for Tuesdays! So for today only, purchase the necklace and get the earrings FREE!! No coupon needed, I'll automatically ship the beaded earrings with your order.

Check out all the new beaded jewelry including beautiful holiday jewelry!

We've also enjoyed our local production of the Nutcracker - the name you gave this piece is just perfect!

Delicate necklace and truly gives the effect of an airy sugar plum even though the stones are substantial sizes.

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting Grandma! For this winter, so far, this has to be my favorite design. And the picture may seem like the beads are large, but in fact, they are quite delicate. Hope to "see" you around the Studio Blog some more.
