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.
This necklace features a watch-locket and textured strands emerging from a pair of cast cones. I made the locket with a bit of text from a dictionary, a tiny bee charm and four stones. The stones are lovely briolette garnets that I could not string because of cracked holes. They glisten nicely in the locket.
The necklace itself was made by Tracey Johnson. We needed a piece to send in to a magazine…they wanted fibers, fall colors, a pendant. Somehow the two of us came up with this piece of jewelry.
It’s pretty, isn’t it?
Note: sorry for the delay on posts the last few days. I have had trouble getting my photos to upload from my phone. I’m trying to do this blog in the most expedient (read: low tech) way possible and my plans did not include sitting down at my laptop each night. I still am wearing a different necklace every day, even if I can’t get it to post on the correct day.
