Mixed metals

So you saw my polyvore inspiration I used for my mixed metal designs. I figured now would be a good time to follow up and show you what my pieces turned out like.

The bracelet is a 3 strand one and I love the contrasting colors. I wasn't sure how the solid, all one color strands would look, and I think I might recreate this with just a random mixing of all colors on all 3 strands and compare the two.

It was the hoop earrings that really got me to thinking that it might look amazing to do it this way.

I actually love how these hoop earrings turned out and I am definitely going to order more of these beads so that I can create a necklace (I'm thinking long, maybe wire linked, a few strands) for myself with the mixed colors. I'd also probably go larger in size to make construction a bit easier for myself (especially if I'm going to be wire wrapping each one).

So what do you think? I'm loving mixed metals, and I couldn't be more pleased with how these turned out.
