As mentioned in an earlier post, I have been making a lot of jewelry the past few weeks. Probably because it is easier to pack up a small box of beading supplies and work on my lunch hour than it is to try to pull out all the stamping supplies (plus more portable.)
So the necklace below spawned from a necklace I had seen somewhere that cost far too much for me to afford. What I love about making my own jewelry is that it is not nearly as hard to do as it looks, and since I am broke its the only way I can afford something that looks fabulous.
Once again I took the photo with my iphone in very poor lighting….In person this necklace has a lot of BLING factor to it. Looks very fancy with those clear glass seed beads reflecting every hint of light. Sorry that the photo really doesn’t do it much justice.
Project 111 of 365: My First Bead Weaving Necklace
111 of 365: My first bead weaving necklace.
In this necklace I used mostly natural materials….I used sesame jasper beads, black onyx beads, and dark jade pendant (so this was dyed or color enhanced), glass seed beads, and tibetan silver findings to give it a more vintage look (and not as likely to tarnish as sterling silver.)
Hope you like my divergence from stamping for a while 🙂
