Evoking times and cultures gone by, Ancient combines deep and rich colors and textures for a dynamic look. Classic black, deep burgundy and maroon, dusty yellow, and dark brass come together to look like relics found in a mausoleum. Try mixing Swarovski Elements in Jet, Burgundy, and Jonquil Satin with Maroon pearls or fire polished glass beads for a dark and lavish look. Add in some natural brass findings, chain, or charms like the scarab for a bit of mystery. Weave together seed beads using the netting or herringbone technique for an antiquated look, or string a Baroque pendant from a strand of crystals and pearls for a classic feel. Either way you decide, you're sure to have a smashing piece that is complex and mysterious.
