Two chains, several ceramic beads, many glazes.
It was hot today. Even these necklaces were almost too much.
Beautiful Basha bead. I’ll post instructions on at Shiny Little Things by the end of the week.
A busy day with only a meeting in the morning followed by an afternoon of cooking for 19 guests…what to wear? Ahh, my Susan Lenart Kazmer dice-and-lightbulb charm necklace with sterling rolo chain and Kazmerian balled wire bail. Of course.
I love this necklace.
See, my last name is pronounced ‘dice’ even though it’s not spelled that way. Plus I love polka dots. Plus I like black and white.
This necklace is a simple charm made of Art Clay Silver strung on a length of acid-green silk. I made the charm. It is one of the few metal clay pieces I have made. I really wanted to love that medium, but somehow I realized I’m more of a collage artist and not a sculptor. It just always felt weird and I never loved what I made the way I often love the charms and pendants other people make.
Well, except this moon.
It was just a rubber stamp I borrowed and pressed into the clay. I fully intended to give this charm as a gift to someone but then I wore it one day and looked in the mirror. That moon looks like a perfect letter ‘C’ in the mirror. I loved the idea of a secret initial as I’m not exactly the type to wear a monogram most of the time. But secrets, I love secrets.
That acid green silk is just knotted or tied at the neck. No clasp.
I usually wear this necklace daily when I take a summer camping trip. Never take it off. Wonder how I’ll handle that this year.
