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! 🙂
