(Ohio USA )
The first requirement for this necklace was it had to be easy on and off, so it had to be clasp-free. Then it needed to be a soft texture around the neck and in soft creamy, dreamy colors.
Add to that, a look of old and new in one complete look. The wearer has dexterity issues and enjoys an eclectic jewelry wardrobe.
With all of those requirements guiding me, I used some re-purposed trim (blue) along with the soft purple cording to make it easy on and off over the head. Some chain and charms completed the look. Originally I used ribbon for the length around the neck, but found the trim and soft mesh cording was the better choice for this lady.
Thinking outside of the box, making color choices that were not my first choice, but learning that the end result could still be pleasing was a good lesson in necklace making.
Thanks for letting me share this work with you. When I see the Jewelry Making Journal newsletter in my inbox, I save it to savor it!
