It's always a lovely feeling when a piece is finished. This one took a bit longer than planned, as I decided to fashion those little carnelian bead links right to the back of the necklace. After all, I had a bowl full of the lovely little beads and it feels so good to be generous with my time and materials. Hope the warmth of feeling magically transfers into the necklace!
I already have a pile of new beads sitting on my bench. A piece of dumortierite which is dark blue, and some sodalite beads, also blue are ready to be fashioned into something with the feel of of the sea about it. As always I will start with some sketches so I know roughly what shapes I'm aiming at.
