Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello folks, how's tricks? I'm skipping around the house with the sun beating down on us for the moment. It is such a mood elevator to have sunshine for a change, isn't it? However, if we didn't have the rain and snow, would we enjoy the sun quite as much? The garden is coming on in leaps and bounds, and I can't wait for the weekend. One more meeting this afternoon, and I'm done. I have friends coming round for a meal at the weekend and need to get prepped for that.
Those Summer Nights
The beautiful weather got me in the mood to make the necklace I'm about to show you.
I have a passion for unusual beads and beads with interesting markings. This piece has both and I'm quietly pleased with it. Some of the solar quartz beads are hollow at the centre, and I had to insert tiny seed beads to cover the beading wire in the middle of each stone which was a tricky endeavour, accompanied by the usual soundtrack of swearing at the beads as they refused to do my bidding and jump onto the wire obediently, but I'm glad I took the trouble. Bare beading wire is never a good look.
That's me for this week, folks. Have a fabulous weekend, I'll catch up with you soon. I'm off for a little sojourn in the garden before I have to start chopping and stirring for my guests.
See you soon,
