The first I am calling Fisherman's Net. It reminds me of the sea and beachy relaxation. I have knotted waxed linen, sodalite rounds and wood discs in a netted design for the length of the necklace.
I thought that for such an organic piece, that a simple clay bead and loop would make a fitting closure. To finish it off I added a sweet acorn charm by http://www.chubbychicocharms.etsy.com/
I liked the blue piece so much that I went right into making one in browns. You know how I go crazy for those browns! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_2&listing_id=30238065
This one I call Walk in the Woods. This necklace reminds me of something a wood fairy might wear. Maybe while collecting wild mushrooms for dinner? Know anyone like that? I do!
The idea for these necklaces has been festering for a while. You can see it in the way I strung my disc bead strands for sale months ago. Like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23752243
I am trying hard to get back in a jewelry making mode after being so focused on bead making for months. At the same time I am deep in the clay here at the studio. I want to get both fantastic beads and fantastic jewelry back in my etsy shop and artisanclay.com site
How's everyone dealing with the change of season? Are you feeling it yet? We have gone through such change around our house these past couple of weeks, new job, new school, illness. I am feeling really happy to be getting slowly used to the new rhythm.
