It's no secret I am a bit of a magpie. In the 'bright, shiny, sparkly' sense, and 'The Toon' sense, and also in the hoarding sense. I buy or acquire stuff, and put it to one side for the right moment.
I now have a stash of gemstones, mainly from Jewellery Maker, but elsewhere too. Today is when I start showing what I am making. I know I will get better (not entirely sure I am using the right things with the right things yet, but hey! It's only wire, so I can always take them apart again.
A couple of weeks back I got some GORGEOUS agate faceted beads. Oh my. Wonderful. I stroked
them for a while, and then had an idea of fancy chain - which I don't have. So I used some black .8mm wire and created loops at either end. It was a bit fiddly linking them together, but I got there.
The necklace is approx. 40 inches around - so it sits very low - almost belly button level. The colours are orangey, sage, mustard, all held together with black wire, ooh, lovely. Now I have to decorate that display hand I have had on the shelf for a while!
Hope you like!
