Last week-end, I indulged in what I called "counter programming." I don't watch sports on TV, so I decided to spend my time finishing up two necklaces and making a new necklace full of vintage jewelry finds (thanks to the inspiration of Deryn Mentock and Ruth Rae).
The first necklace I finished is a black and white beaded necklace I made last summer. As with most of my projects, it is deliberately asymmetrical.
I started my mermaid necklace back when I thought my round robin necklace had gone missing (thankfully, it was found). It sat around for a long time waiting to be finished.
And then, I wanted to make one of those beautiful necklaces full of vintage jewelry and other bits and pieces. My attempt is not as full and rich as the ones Deryn makes (where does she find those incredible vintage jewelry pieces?); but I used what I had and I'm pleased with it.
Here it is again, scanned so that you can see some of the details better.
