One Color Crayon Challenge

Welcome to my offering in the One Crayon Color Challenge! I chose black. I hope it was okay to include white, as it is the opposite end of the spectrum from black, right? There's various shades of black/grey/gunmetal/antiqued silver going on. It features a beautiful Round Rabbit Extra pendant, and was a gift for my hair stylist (her salon is where I sell most of my jewelry).

  1. Pretty! I am doing black too and was wondering if I could add a bit of white. This looks so very pretty!

    PS: Do take another pic on a different background? the last one...the necklace is lost on the print on the mannequin.

    1. That last pic was kind of an overkill joke. The whole thing is shown here! Plus, I've already given it away :)

  15. I've got that 'lighter shade of pale' song going on in my head ... this might be the other side of black, but wow. I'm loving it. Truth be told, green might be my favorite color, but black is what I wear. this is spectacular - I think the black gang might have my vote!

  16. Beautiful. I know that your hairdresser will love it. Or does she already have it? I have this pendant in turquoise and red, but I have decided not to create jewellery with it - I'm going to hang it on my wall, it is so big and absolutely stunning! That Nancy....
