WARMTH




I had no real reason to make this necklace, except the idea and concept felt good. I wanted to use the metal pendant I had initially made as a pair of earrings, but they turned out too noisy for me! I found some beads, particularly the brown blister pearls, the rose rectangular pearls, and the cream faceted glass, that I really liked, and wanted to use them, I just liked the combination, it felt good. I always have a tough time using fabric in my pieces, but I'm always drawn to it, and figured since I had this brown ribbon, I thought it went well. It feels very brown and rosy out these days, still with a touch of lingering green, but it's a warm feeling of browness, a snuggle up with a blanket warm. My homemade balled end copper circle links have become a particular favorite of mind, and they always represent the cycle of life, beginning to end, and not always perfect. The blister pearls I use many times, they seem to say to me to "fly", but the metal keeps me anchored and I continue on. Here's to a new day, anew week, a new view.

Lots of earthy goodness! Love the circle links!! And those blister pearls remind me of bird heads. Why would you need another reason to create a necklace, other that being inspired to do so? Have a wonderful day, Sharon!

Sharon...what a beautiful necklace...in one of my favorite colors schemes. I agree with wanting to incorporate fiber but not sure how to do so...but you've done a great job with it!! And here's to a new day...it's a special one in our house. I hope you're off to a great week! {Hugs!!}

Oooh i love this one too Sharon, like Cindy, it's my favorite colors schemes. And it was a good idea to add fabrics, it gave the necklace a sort of lightness.

And what about those... marvellous, lovely, beautiful, etc, etc... new homemade balled end copper links you made. OMG Sharon, although you explained me how to do the balls end, i am not able to make them... Shame on me girls !

Enjoy this new day, new week, new view dear friend.

Beautiful necklace. I have the same issue about using fabric - I keep buying ribbons thinking I'll use them in my designs, but have a hard time actually doing it. Thanks for the inspiration in that area!
