Our theme for August is “CONCEPTS” and the entries for this week’s design challenge were inspired by the theme of “OPPOSITES”.

Jo Pound of Jewelry by Jolane
I decided to do opposites with the traditional black and white.

Sherri Jones of SenoJ Designs
It's as simple as Black & White. When combined they make "RED." Created with Black Onyx, White Agate and adorned with a Lampwork Pendant.

Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard
I combined white faceted round Czech glass beads with smooth jet black pointed oval glass beads for this "opposites" choker-style necklace. The coordinating earrings are stacks of alternating black and white Czech glass round beads in graduated sizes.

Laura Harrison Bosch of Multibeadia Designs
Opposites #1 - Maybe this is more contrast than opposite. I just got these 2-color Opalite rectangle beads at a show this weekend, pinky gold & milky blue. I mixed them with round Opalite & Blue Quartz Nugget Rondelles. I just really like the colors together.

Opposites #2 - Another donut creation! White & Black Zebra Jasper strung on leather with large hole Freshwater Pearls. Then I attached two separate chains - one black & white and the other black fire polished Czech beads. Even though I think black/white is so obvious it's not something I do, I think it's only the 2nd black & white piece of jewelry I've ever made.

"Candy Cane" & "Peppermint" nuno felted wool cuffs. "Candy Cane" (left) white on red -a recycled red mesh produce bag, felted with natural ivory Wensleydale wool locks. "Peppermint" (right) red on white - an upcycled blouse sleeve, of sheer crinkled silk chiffon in creamy ivory, nuno felted with rich Chinese red wool. Each cuff has 3 coordinating covered buttons in red with white lace.

"Ebony & Ivory" earrings with ceramic art beads by scorched earth. "Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord, why don't we?" - Paul McCartney
