Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello folks, thanks for joining me once again. I've been ever so busy this week at a training course about Human Factors that affect safety in hospitals. I am on a course to learn to become an instructor, and a very intensive but interesting course it has been too. I have had little time for jewellery this week, but have been putting time into my winter collection during every spare moment I found. I hope to have the pieces all photographed and revealed by the end of this month. I have to say that I really love the necklaces and pearls feature heavily in the collection. There is nothing more elegant than a string of pearls, and there are so many new ways to string a pearl necklace - no more grandma's strand of pearls for us!
Bead and Jewellery (Vol 81) magazine came out with one of my tutorials in it - the Gold Rush Necklace.
The actual piece is on the website on the Lagenlook jewellery page of the website, but you can send for the magazine if you fancy learning to make it yourself.
I've made this necklace before - and it has been consistently loved and people have requested it over and over again, so when I found some of the spacers lying in my stash, I quickly ran up another. I love the song too and Lady Gaga, although not my favourite artiste, has made such a good job of this album with the wonderful Tony Bennett, I couldn't resist playing it for you, enjoy!!
These polymer clay disc beads were made a while earlier and I put the necklace together - I love the resin accent bead, which I brought back from a trip to India a couple of years ago. The necklace is light and easy to wear, and very flexible - being almost monochrome, it will go with anything.
That's all I've had time for this week folks. Have a lovely week and I'll catch you next Friday, same time, same place,
