Today’s necklace was inspired by the latest book “Show Your Colors featuring 30 projects by SoftFlex designers.”
I asked designer Nancy Donaldson to feature Dazzle-it Ori crystals in her sample.
Setting up her design took some time because there are so many crystals to choose from.
Dazzle-it Ori Crystals-Metallic Copper became the star of her necklace.

The quirky color combination of early ‘60s interior decorations — think Olive refrigerator and Pink walls
We are using two color stories that use bold contrast colors to really make our prints pop: Tangerine Pink and Black Polka dots on a Midnight Slate background or Citron Lime and Aqua dots on a Light Rust background
We are using bright accent colors, such as Tangerine Pink, in prints as well as color blocking details to add pops of color while keeping the palette warm and dark for fall

Bright lips in Berry Citrus colors complement the accent colors sprinkled throughout the collection
Get the look with Dazzle-It Ori Crystals
I have had this huge assortment of shells from the Dazzle-It line on my table for weeks. Realizing it was AUGUST I was suddenly wanting to create something ASAP to wear before summer was over.
I also had a package of three hole connectors that I have never used. It was time for me to stop thinking single strand only!
I created a collage of strands.
These are shell beads – OVAL w/Centre Hole and I used the light gold.
These are called shell dice! They are available in nine colours!
These irregular shell beads with holes are also in many colours. I have used pink and purple already. This is the natural strand.
Navette Shape Shell strands are in the catalog in eleven different colours.
I could not resist adding a little Swarovski crystal.
I used Dazzle-It 100% silk bead cord to string all my shells. I think I can say I am finally out of my single strand box!
