A tassel of beads topped by a ceramic bird bead I made with dangles featuring Elaine Ray beads and gimp.
It’s hanging off that brass neck wire I love to use and reuse.
Some days I can’t take a good picture.
At least I like the necklace.
Waxed linen stitches together Elaine Ray beads and a bit of glass. Find complete instructions here.
This necklace features a pendant by Olivia Dowdy. The raku-fired ceramic is lightweight and shimmery. I really love the glow of that poppy red. I’ve hung it from a naked brass chain that will age naturally, and added a Swarovski crystal coral branch.
A side note: my camera lens was broken and posting was difficult for a while. I fixed that in December but still hadn’t resumed posting. Today, after a few words of encouragement, I realized I just needed to get back to the routine.
