Since I can't torch at this moment, I did manage to put together a "little" necklace. Remember those 40 plus beads I made for the 40 bead challenge ? Well, they've been sitting on my desk since finishing them. I couldn't figure out what to do with them. I don't wear jewelry much anymore. Never wore necklaces at all but these beads were too big and too many to make a bracelet. Mainly a bit too bulky. So, a necklace they became. Had to keep it simple because the beads, all put together, are HEAVY. I weighed the finished piece and it weighs in at nearly 9 ounces. Now, that might not sound like much but believe me - around the neck, it is ! lol ! Had to keep it simple. Not much room for many additional componets. Just added some tiny black beads to basically separate the big beads. Wha-la. I think it came together nicely. I will wear it tonight to dinner out. This sort of thing is more of a statement piece I guess you'd call it. Simple yet your eye is drawn to it. Hard NOT to look at all those big, round beads ! lol !
Hopefully, I'll be at the torch soon. Thanks so much for coming by ! Please come back again soon !
