Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello readers, and Caprilicious Jewellery and I wish you a very happy, virus free New Year in 2021. I can't wait to see the back of 2020 and finally it is done, with all its Brexit hype and traumas and travails of the pandemic. I can only hope that 2021 will be better with the promise of the vaccine and freedom from the virus.
Everyone is looking forward to going back to their regular activities and most of us in the UK are longing for a holiday in warmer climes. My final piece of jewellery for the year unconsciously reflects this as I made a necklace that would be just right for packing away to wear while lounging on the deck of a cruise ship or on a beach, cocktail in hand, scarlet painted toenails peeping from espadrilles and a sunhat on your head, the latest novel in one hand, perusing the male equivalent of the Girl from Ipanema through your reflective sunglasses. Hmm, I like that picture!
The Cruise Necklace
The cruise necklace is a stacked 'neckmess' of three separate pieces which can be worn alone, but look their best when put together. I've used some of my stash of carabiner clasps - the candy striped one in particular is extremely pretty. Acrylic chain links in two vibrant neon colours which can be snapped off to shorten the necklace if required, the bright colours are toned down with howlite and green agate in the other two strands.
Have a wonderful week people, I have a week off work and intend to spend most of it resting up in bed with a good book and Netflix on my i pad, recovering from a hectic few days at Christmas time at the day job. Take care and hold it together, the end is in sight.
Catch you next week, same time, same place.
