Long, leather and wood. A bit jangly.

This necklace was one of the ones I made on my vacation. It’s made of knotted orange leather with wood and resin beads. The leather has a tricky slide clasp made of leather, too. I can wear the necklace at about 18″ or at 24″.

If I wasn’t trying to wear a different necklace every day for a year I’d want to wear this for days on end. It’s dramatic but unfussy.

Next year!

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 mix of elements; red Chinese ceramic, very old Tibetian turquoise, Elaine Ray hand made ceramic, a drilled ammonite fossil, African green amber, a carved bone die. All strung and knotted on red leather cording, finished with a copper-plated steel chain and lobster claw clasp.

Haphazard but meaningful, if only to me.
