The necklace I made

December 28th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

The pictures aren't back from the wedding yet, of course, but I did take a picture of the necklace I made prior to stuffing it into the jewelry making supply tackle box for reuse.

There's matching earrings that I didn't try to get into the picture.

For whatever reason the strands weren't perfectly aligned even though I had them consistent over the shoulders and on a triple strand clasp.  You can see it a little in the way the center beads are a bit off kilter.  Something to work on, if I decide to make another one.

It was also just a tad long so maybe take the individual strands an inch or so shorter.  Right now they're two inches apart (each strand is two inches longer than the one above it) so next time I might try one inch.  That's the fun of making your own jewelry.  You can always make it differently the next time.

    I didn't know you made jewellry too. I need to show you some of the stuff Pooky makes. His are more primitive native-American styled though, done with bone, wampum, metal beads and some glass chevron beads. He also used to do a bit of scrimshaw.
