My completed honeysuckle necklace

'Honeysuckle' is finished at last. I'm glad I took the time to make a handmade toggle clasp. Those little twists on the ends help to make it really strong and secure. A bought clasp just wouldn't have blended in so well with the design.

 
 

 
 
Went out for a frosty walk this morning to get some inspiration for a new piece. Spotted a jay, it's bright plumage contrasting with the terracotta tiles on the roof it was sitting on. Back home I found a lovely piece of glass as a starting point.


I will add some crisp black and white striped elements to make a piece inspired by this lovely bird. Now to get busy with the sketchbook to come up with a design.
