This necklace features a pendant by Olivia Dowdy. The raku-fired ceramic is lightweight and shimmery. I really love the glow of that poppy red. I’ve hung it from a naked brass chain that will age naturally, and added a Swarovski crystal coral branch.
A side note: my camera lens was broken and posting was difficult for a while. I fixed that in December but still hadn’t resumed posting. Today, after a few words of encouragement, I realized I just needed to get back to the routine.
It is hot here this week and I feel like I can barely be bothered to dress at all. I want to wear a single layer of linen from head-to-toe and haunt shady places all day.
Duty calls, though. There are meetings, library books to return, that darn google+ to figure out. I had to dress.
This necklace used to have a too-large, too-busy pendant that I cut up years ago. It does feature some Japanese wound-glass beads in red and white, plus vintage coral and crystals. The strand itself isn’t busy-just cheery.
Perfect for a day like today.
