Seven strand of vintage bone beads, clasped with a brass hook. They probably came from a garage sale.
‘Only $1? These are decent, I can cut them up and make something.’
But somehow I never did.
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.
Two chains, several ceramic beads, many glazes.
It was hot today. Even these necklaces were almost too much.
I’ve layered a layered necklace! Main necklace contains an owl pendant by Jon Pitts, ceramic rounds by Elaine Ray and Japanese kimono cording. Extras for layering are African trade glass (orange) and Indian hand-looped beaded chains.
Sometimes you just have to mix it up.
