Orthoceras Silurian fossil



In the online bead art group that I'm in, this month's challenge is to pick a color scheme that we don't normally work with. Not just colors that are different, but a different way of combining them. I normally work with analogous schemes and am very comfortable with those and with monochrmomatic schemes. To try something different, I've picked a triad this time. Using red-violet sugalite, greenish blue turquoise, and gold, I'm going to build an embroidered necklace around this black (neutral) fossil. The Orthoceras Silurian is a cephalopod fossil. This one is small, and comes from Morocco. I'm glad I waited for just this project to use this piece!
