So anyone who tuned into last night’s stream (click here for part 1) saw me making a beaded chain for a pendant. This is something I do quite often, as I think all parts of the necklace should have handmade attention. I chose some champagne colored glass beads, and rose/black iridescent seed beads and made link after tiny link for about 2 hours. Here’s the results!
This still needs its clasp, but it’s about 18 inches, a lovely length for any type of wear.
And here she is on my tablecloth. Quite a pretty set. Not sure if I’m ok with the little dangle on the pendant. I might yet change that out for something more similar to the rest of the necklace. Depends what I find trawling through my stash. That trawling is a little difficult on cam 😉
This lets you see the contents of the little vial, which are quite pretty! These things are very popular. I think it’s because they look old-fashioned, which people always love. Also, I like to put in certain intentions when I fill a vial…dried roses, dried spring flowers, pink and champagne colored beads…clearly this is for romance! That extra thought counts.
And the earrings, awaiting their hooks!
