I thought I would share two necklaces I made last week. Both very different, both appealing to different people no doubt.
The first one is a modern look, made with gorgeous agate stones. Some time ago, my friend saw an agate necklace and said she would like one too. I told her if she found beads she liked I would make one for her.
Recently I visited my favourite bead shop and said I would look to see if they had any beads that she might like, since she hadn’t found any herself. Several poor quality phone photos and phone calls later, I made an executive decision and picked a strand.
Then we had to work out what the necklace was going to look like. My friend told me she wanted just the beads in a simple, short design. But I knew they wouldn’t sit properly or look their best like that. After much negotiation and showing her several options, we finally agreed and the necklace was made!
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo before I handed the finished necklace over, but I did catch her wearing it a few days later…
I have another friend who loves pearls and pink. She didn’t ask to have this necklace made, I just ‘used’ her as inspiration!
I wanted a multi-strand, luxurious looking necklace, with a mix of colours and textures. I also wanted to use a rose as a feature, meaning I had to work out how to combine the 5 strands into one to accommodate that.
I think it turned out quite nicely! I know the rose comes in other colours, and I think black and white would give this necklace a totally new look…I might try that another day 🙂
Which look do you prefer?
