Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello all, hope everyone is well and happy. I certainly feel the joys of spring with the sun shining and the air warming up. If only we could lose the slightly chill wind that is coming down from the North, we'd be laughing.
I've been spending time on an old unfinished project- I was making this beautiful beaded woven necklace using faceted haematite. I ran sort of a couple of strings of beads and sent out for more. Now the necklace is almost finished. It has a pleasing weight due to the gemstone beads and I think I'm going to finish it off by running a grosgrain ribbon through the centre and a large bow at the back. Have a look at some pictures of the piece as I've gone along.
I've also beaded around a few cabochons - I will use them in an ensemble piece when I've finished my haematite spiral necklace. I like to have something on the go at all times when I'm in front of the telly of an evening catching up on a film on Netflix.
This necklace was designed by a Caprilicious lady who liked a pendant I sourced, but had her own ideas about how it should be worn. I have one on the Caprilicious books, on a very different necklace - they are both delightful, perhaps you will make your own mind up which one you like - have a look at both of them.
And here's the one I put together for her this week.
I've been busy this week, haven't I? I shall take a well earned rest this Bank Holiday weekend - apart from Sunday when I'm due to work at the day job.
Have a fabulous Bank holiday my friends, and I'll catch up with you next week, same time, same place.
