Today was rainy and breezy but I’m still in a Spring mood. This necklace features an Elaine Ray crescent and some lovely Japanese rayon kimono cording. I originally made this design for Beads 2009, an annual Interweave publication. The necklace is longer than it looks in the picture; I tied the ends up to shorten it in a very unprofessional manner. My new, longer hair hid the knots.
This necklace is busy; there are textures, colors, patterns galore. Even though I made it two years ago it feels very current to me. I wish I had a pair of wedge-heeled espadrilles with this mix of colors.
