I think the color is a bit off in the photos, oh well.
This is my yellow jacket necklace. I tried numerous combinations, but a simple design worked best. There is no fighting the stripes, they must dominate.
Recently I have enjoyed designing 'packed' trade bead necklaces. In the past my necklace designs contained other types of beads, mostly because I had few trade beads to work with and I wanted particular colors. My filler beads mainly came from thrift stores and could be from anywhere in the world. Later a bead store opened and provided some Venetian and Czech beads. Now the internet has changed everything. I can find trade beads every day. It's so much fun!
