A new shell necklace

What a perfect weekend! Sitting under a shady parasol at long last, interspersed by spells of Wimbledon. Add in the odd glass of Pimms, garnished with strawberry and mint from the garden and it really doesn’t get much better. Oh but then it DID get much better thanks to the brilliance of the wonderful Andy Murray. What a nail biting match to watch. How I admire his calmness, determination and hard work. I felt  a bit tearful at the end I must admit.

Here at the beading desk things did get done despite the lazing around. I did loads of stock checking and tidying and inevitably found a few little hoarded treasures, one of which was the prettiest shell pendant. These are notoriously difficult to photograph due to the range of shimmering colours you find in this shell.

I made a wire and beaded micro macramé frame to showcase it. Pearls and waxed linen cord make up the strap. The ends are finished with my own handmade coils and jump rings with a metal trigger clasp.
