Green Madonna

I used antiqued copper and bronze colored wire as it was the color of Madonna's hair.  There were yellow accents through the piece so I added the yellow ribbon, the pendant, and the yellow rounds into the pearl strands.  Brown and Green were abundant and obvious choices.

Leaf pendant was purchased from the cutest main street store, Dream Catcher, in Galena, Illinois (  Added bronze colored copper wire accents to green lampwork beads.  Green disc beads have bronze wired loops at each hole connected by double jumprings. 
Three separate strings of pearls create the left side of the necklace with accent yellow rounds are added to the center string. 
The right side consists of copper chain with ribbon (yellow, green, and brown) woven through it. 

 I created two colors of earrings.  Brown:
