This is one serious necklace folks. A special commission for one of my vintage doily necklaces in black and gold. It looks amazing on and although it appears heavy, it's very light to wear.
Now that the weather is warming up I'm working on a few more of my larger necklaces. They're the perfect accessory for Spring as they can dress up the simplest garment. I'm thinking a yellow one is next on the list.
The weather here has been so beautiful of late. Spring has brought new inspiration for a few new pieces. I'm loving wooden beads mixed with gem beads, ceramic beads and vintage lace. Some of these beads I've had for yonks, given to me by friends or sourced at various garage sales. However some are brand spanking new, like the beautiful round patterned wooden beads in both necklaces. I'm a sucker for love hearts!
I've been waiting to use this carved jade piece for a few months now. It's quite large with a diameter of 5cm but I think it works well within the necklace. The diamonte circle was a buckle, sourced from a garage sale, along with a broken necklace of hexagon shaped cinnabar beads. I've featured a couple of them in these earrings.....
I'm on a bit of a roll and whilst I love this renewed energy, my house is suffering terribly for it! I need to work on my time management so that other things get done....you know, things like grocery shopping, washing clothes AND hanging them out, doing dishes, changing sheets, vacuuming.....all that jazz :)
I'll get there one day.
I hope you all have a lovely afternoon. I'll be spending mine gobbling on fresh mangos...Yummo bummo!
