Going wild with wood and wire

The month of May always seems full of tasks that keep me away from the beading desk. There are hedges to trim, patio pots to fill and spring cleaning to do. But a walk through our favourite little wood had me throwing down my duster and reaching for the beads and wire. I could see what I wanted to make in my minds eye…… but how could I make those wooden leaves into a necklace fit for a wood elf? I played around with some scrap wire for a while and eventually the aha moment arrived.

Many happy hours of drilling, painting, wiring, bead weaving and stringing and my ‘Wildwood’ necklace is finished.
