New Necklaces

Just two necklaces to show today.  I have been busy for the past two weeks making jewelry sets for a home show that some friends are doing for me for Mother's Day sales.  I think I am finally done with that batch of stuff, so I took a break and made two things for myself.

This first necklace is what I made with my Bead Table Wednesday beads.  I don't know how I feel about it.  I made it to go with a specific sundress, so I guess I will need to try it on to see.

This one I made with some new wooden beads and carved gemstone flowers I got in the mail today.  I ran out of stringing wire, so I added some chain to the back.  The flower pendant is from Boone Pottery.  Super nice sellers and they ship out very fast.

I was happy to find out that the deadline for Bead Star entries has been moved to April 8 instead of tomorrow.  I think I will try and make a couple more pieces to submit.  Then I am going to have to update my sad little Etsy store.  I haven't put anything new in there since Christmas and the stuff is piling up waiting to be photographed.  I could use a couple more hours in the day to get all the things that I want to accomplish done.

  1. I love both of these necklaces. :) The first one is so hippy and summery; I think it would look good with one of those long tank tops and bell bottoms or denim jacket. The second one is beautiful! It looks like something you'd find in Stringing magazine or something. Very colorful and trendy and perfect for spring. I never would have guessed you ran out of beading wire! The chain goes so perfectly, I thought it was intentional. Beautiful work on both of these. :)
