I never have much time, but last week I was sick and I happened to look around my lounge room as I was sitting suffering, and saw that amongst the usual chaos of beads and findings that surround me... that there were quite a few single original big beads, I need pairs or more to make earrings or anything else really.
So I was inspired to make a necklace of all my one off beads to match a necklace that I made 6 months ago. I needed another to go with it as I don't do things by half's I wear sometimes 10 necklaces at once and a ring on every finger the more the better for me.
I made something to wear when you can't find a colored piece of jewelery that is the "right" color I mean how can you go wrong when you are wearing every color right? I made earrings to match too [well sort of] but they will do for the time being.
Necklace is very long past my waist but I can wear it doubled, the chunky natural gemstone one I made 6 months ago goes to just above my bust.
|OK so I made this 6 moths ago, and I start by wearing this first|
|This is what I made it is long and joined by silver tone chain|
|Some of the beads are very old Art Nouveau and Czech Glass|
|It was hard to take a decent pic of earrings|
