Gossamer Dew entry into the Etsy Beadweavers April Challenge

I have created this necklace and earring set as my entry into the Etsy Beadweavers April Challenge. The challenge is to bead something that evokes the theme - Light as a Breeze.

In making this set I was inspired by the light breezes on early spring mornings that gently move the dew drops on silvern gossamer spider webs creating beautiful gold and silver drops that shimmer in the early morning light. I have used silvern and gold pearls, shimmering faceted beads and sparkling grey seed beads to try to capture the sheen and colours of these 'gossamer dew' moments created by light eary spring breezes.

You can see the other entries in this month's Etsy Beadweavers Challenge by searching EBWC. To vote for your favorite piece please go to www.etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com/. The voting begins on April 9 and ends April 15. You can browse the pieces on the EBW blog.
