Viva Carmen Miranda necklace

Watch & Stitch: Watch the video, download the step-by-step instructions!
It's time to party when you wear a necklace-and-earring set in the exciting tropical colors favored by the queen of Brazilian samba. Notice how the soothing influence of blue and rose balances the sizzle of mango, fuchsia, and lime. Use Christine Strube's bead colors and patterns, which are shown here, or design a color palette of your own. Be daring, and pair colors you wouldn't normally use with others you're more comfortable with. Making substitutions is half the fun!
