Spring in Watership Down Floral Necklace

This is a fun, colourful, and springy necklace that I recently made for myself.

I was watching the series “Watership Down” at the time (love those bunnies!) 🙂 , and I could imagine these types of colourful flowers blooming there in the spring and summer, around the bunnies’ warren, so I decided to call it my “Spring in Watership Down” necklace. 🙂

The green discs, made from jute or something like it I think, and the beaded chain, came from a necklace that was passed on to me, that I decided to take apart.

True to my nature, I wanted to layer something on top of them.

I still had, in my stash, an assortment of paper flowers that I had purchased on clearance at Michaels quite a while ago, as well as some crocheted ones.

I decided that, although they are less sturdy, the paper flowers seemed to fit with the natural fibres of the discs much better.

I tried some solid coloured ones, but couldn’t settle on any of them, I think because I knew the necklace was for myself, and I already had necklaces in those colour combinations.

I decided that I wanted a multi-coloured one, and chose this combination of flowers.

I also happen to love these satin-finish spring green pearl beads, and wanted to include them too.

This necklace makes me happy.

I’ve worn it already, and it is extremely lightweight, which I love, but still eye-catching with the bright colours.

I hope the bunnies would approve! 🙂

  1. Tamara, I just LOVE the colors you’ve used in this necklace. The beautiful (coral-colored?) background really showcases the jewelry. The happy colored discs do look like spring, and I like that although they look fairly large, they also look lightweight – which I think of as a Spring-ish quality. I’m sure the bunnies love this necklace … but I hope they won’t eat the flowers. 🙂

  2. Thanks, Rena! 🙂 The coral background is one of my scarves. I love coral, it’s one of my key wardrobe colours, and it does really jive with all the colours in the necklace.

    The green discs are 1 3/4″ wide, so they are large. It’s definitely a very showy necklace on, because of the size and the colours, but extremely comfortable.

    Keeping an eye on those bunnies! 😉

    Tamara,
    I can see why this necklace makes you happy. It has all the elements – colors, flowers, beads! This reminds me of something I would purchase and wear on a vacation in a tropical location.

  4. Hi Liz! You’re right – it would be a perfect tropical vacation necklace! 🙂
