Decisions, decisions...

I am hoping to get some input on which of these cubic zirconia teardrops I should order with a gift certificate I am fortunate enough to have in my possession for Firemountain Gems.

Of course, I could order all three, but having too much variety of one beautiful thing isn't always good for me.
I get too distracted and unclear about what to make and sometimes don't make anything at all!

It wasn't that long ago that I used the bright yellow cz teardrop to make a necklace using the autumn brown softflex wire.

I have been wearing it often since it warmed up and it's like wearing a little piece of sunshine with me.

I was wishing I had another teardrop to make something similar in a different color.

When I took a quick look at the Firemountaingems catalog I saw a few of these that I would like, but not one specific color that stood above the rest (since I already have the yellow).

Actually, I take that back. I really liked the champagne, but it's rather close in color to the yellow, so I think I need something different.

Here are the three I'm thinking about. Black, since I wear a lot of that to work. Clear, since it would go with everything. Orange, because it is bright and happy.

Hmmm.... HELP!! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)

My vote goes to black- I think it looks super classy!

My vote is for the red as well -- you can always wear them with black. Black is my second choice.

I vote for orange!

hmmm that is a tough decision. I love the black as I just think it is such a classic but gee that orange, which isn't a colour I'd normally go for, is very striking isn't it.

Good luck on deciding. I reckon if it was me I'd weaken and order all three!!

If it were me, I'd go with the black because I like a black/silver combination. And you can mix in any other colored accent crystals and create one heck of a gaw-geous necklace. :)

But that's just me... what's a girl to do? I know whichever way you go, you'll make something AMAZING with them! :)

Get a topaz color. It will go with black and blue and purple things. And it is different enough from the yellow.

Davinia said...

I'd have to go black too. I agree with Dawn about adding different coloured crystal accents.

Black if you like the classy look. And orange, if you want to do a bright summer design.

Aren't those gorgeous...this is a tough question Lisa...

Black, because you wear that color a great deal to work & could wear what ever you make often, besides is classy, elegant & fun,all at the same time, & you can dress it up or down!!!

Clear, because you can wear the piece with anything anytime anywhere & can mix it with anything!!!

Orange...because is it a fun summery punch punch of color & you would love wearing it!!!

Not much help I know, :0)
Can wait to hear what you choose & what you eventually make with it!
Have fun...
Cheers

Since you wear black to work often, think about the clear or the orange--both would be dramatic against a black background!

Swapna said...

I would say , add a bunch of those red ones into a nice ring and use that as a pendant .

Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor said...

Oh Lisa I understand your turmoil! I would have a hard time deciding which one as well. Go with your heart rather than with practicality. Go with the fiery Orange!

I would go for the crystal and use the other colors as contrast.
