Has It Really Been This Long?

Hello!  I feel like I've been absent for ages!  I've been out with the crud that's going around - yuk!  It's had me unmotivated and really tired, and blogging was the last thing I wanted to do.  But now I'm back up and (slowly) going, and wanted to share a quick post before I go clean the house and do laundry...

So, I had beads left over from Lorelei's Michael's Challenge, and wanted to use them up with another design:

Nothing too fancy, but I wanted to include the two design elements I wasn't able to incorporate in my first design:  The small green pearls and the dreaded white chain (lol).

I'm surprised and pleasantly pleased with how this turned out.  I made sure to frame the white chain with a dark copper chain and the green pearls, and it really takes the stark contrast down a few notches.

Well, that's it for now!  If you want to purchase this necklace, it will be for sale in my etsy shop shortly!

Glad you are feeling better.All the necklaces in the challenge were fab but that white chain would make most designers blood run cold!!LoL!I particalarly love the carved beads.I can,t remember the the name of the material they are made from(Having a "foggy"day)In the UK,it is hard to get good quality beads like those.I import a lot of mine.
I love to work with wire and adore your designs.Planning some soldering for the first time in the next week or two!Wish me luck!
Love and light,Anne.

Sorry that you had the crud. I was under the weather all last week, too. Not fun, is it?

This necklace really worked. I was kind of shocked. I didn't like those white chains, either. Actually, I didn't like the chains at all but this is really nice. I would wear it!

Sometimes it actually "all" comes together doesn't it Molly? That's what makes us keep doing what we do!!
