This old, old, old necklace has a mix of glass beads and pretty, lacey filigree. I haven’t worn it in years and forgot how much I liked it.
This necklace is a whopper. Gigantic resin beads strung on red leather with a single, blown-glass Venetian bead off-center.
Yummy. I love giant necklaces like this. Very Wilma Flinstone.
Not very Wilma; the bra and slip straps showing with this sundress.
Don’t worry, I wore a tasteful cardigan over it to work. For photographic purposes I ditched the cardi and now, looking a the tell-tale straps I am regretting that decision. This necklace, however, I will never regret.
A lariat; #8 silk knotted occasionally between vintage glass, seed pearls, very old Bali. Finished with a hollow-blown stripey bead on one end and a hunk of smokey quartz on the other.
That’s my friend, Beth, in the background. She didn’t believe I was going to use a mirror to take a picture of myself.
