This necklace is a modification of the one I made for this tutorial for Ornamentea.com. I made the original necklace last year and after we shot the tutorial I decided to make some changes to the design. I removed the small brass envelope and shortened the length. The crystal rhinestones feel very fancy to me and I wanted to feel fancy today.
I actually felt tired because it takes me a few weeks to get adjusted to Daylight Savings Time. This is a strategy I employ when I feel tired or sick; I dress up a bit. Not that I think dressing better will make me feel better. It’s just that dressing in comfy sweats and a tee would feel good until I caught a glimpse of myself and then I’d think ‘Well, she could have made a bit of an effort, right?’
I even tried to wear some platform-y black sandals today but that didn’t work out. I carried them to work in my bag but they went right onto the floor of the office and stayed there all day. Actually, the sandals are still on the office floor. It’s midnight. I hope they aren’t lonely.
The directions to this necklace are available here. You’ll have to make your own modifications.
