I’ve layered a layered necklace! Main necklace contains an owl pendant by Jon Pitts, ceramic rounds by Elaine Ray and Japanese kimono cording. Extras for layering are African trade glass (orange) and Indian hand-looped beaded chains.

Sometimes you just have to mix it up.

Long, leather and wood. A bit jangly.

Too simple-round wood beads with a pierced Elaine Ray ceramic bead and a fossilized ammonite pendant.

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 made of wooden beads covered in colorful Decopatch paper and strung on silk duiponi.

Instructions were published in Handcrafted Jewelry in 2010.

Coral, wood, metal spacers.

There used to be a metal ribbon tassel hanging from the coral but it broke off.

I keep this because I like the color.

I think I need to rework it.
