Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello folks, hope the Bank Holiday weekend finds you well and out and about, having yourselves a load of fun. I am working tomorrow so that's taken a bit of the shine off of it, but equally, I'm not in the mood for a good time just now, so it's OK by me to have to work the blues away.
I've been making a necklace with a number of bezelled elements, and every evening, I sit in front of the TV after work and sew tiny beads onto a felt backing. The piece isn't ready yet and I'll probably carry on sewing well into the next couple of weeks before I have anything to show for all the effort that's going into the piece.
In the meantime, I have a little necklace that is very pretty and very versatile for you today. Kiara was made to carry a little mandala pendant that is set with abalone, turquoise, amethyst, garnets and carnelian. The amethyst beads have a matte finish and have been spaced with turquoise and electroplated ceramic square beads.
I think this one is very versatile, it can not only quite easily be worn to the office, but will easily go to dinner of an evening and bring in the compliments. The turquoise beads lift the colour quotient and echo the blues in the pendant.
That's me for today folks. I hope you have a wonderful week and I'll catch you next Friday/Saturday, same time, same place.
