Etsy BeadWeavers April 2016 Challenge "Pompeii"

Many thanks to the February team vote winner Cira Troilo for a great Challenge for April!  Cira would like to see a touch of Antique Italian culture in a Challenge all about Pompeii,  the ancient Roman city that was destroyed and buried under volcanic ash in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.

The style and colours should be representative of the era,  jewelry in the ancient style of Pompeii with the use of metallic elements would be great.  The style was very rich but minimal and often featured cameos, carved stones with faces, pearls and gold.Colours of the time included royal blue, turquoise, green, red or bordeaux.
