I hear there are worse spiders than the black widow, but I wouldn’t want one in my sleeping bag. Brick stitched earrings, 2″ long. Two strand coral necklace, 19″ with adjustable closure.
Dalmatian jasper and tiger eye. Eight strands. 18″.
I was just wondering how the news anchor women accessorize. I never see them wear the same thing twice. Do they buy or borrow? 19″
Serpentine and freshwater pearls. The big rock is Sam. Just kidding. I don’t know what it is. 19″.
Sister to the Green Cylinder Necklace. 21″. $80.
The focal bead is actually a tiny sculpture made with right angle weave and filled in with aventurine rounds. 18″
Adjustable chain closure. 20″
I spent a winter’s day making this necklace with my older sister with materials from her vast collection. Thanks, Beth! Unfortunately, we no longer live in the same town, but seeing this project will always be a pleasant reminder of listening to the Kinks whilst complaining about the big, bad world. This necklace has practically everything, natural stone rounds, freshwater pearls and lampwork glass. 22″
Two layers of beading around drapery cord. The base layer is a netting upon which I anchored the second layer with alternating loops of green. Feels like a caterpillar on your neck, except without the brown spittle. 22″.
From Thanksgiving to the end of January I toiled away. First, I covered a length of drapery cord with peyote stitch, simply letting the pattern “happen”. Then I individually stitched each leaf, adding dewdrops here and there. I hid the clasp within the leaves at the front, so the design could flow undisturbed around the neck.
I originally found the idea in a how-to book, and I thought I could make a fancier one. So I did. 23″.
