Many, many months ago I made a necklace of blue-and-white porcelain beads, accented with lapis and hematite. The idea had been in my head for a while and it was nice to get it out into the real world- but you may have noticed that it never made its way into my Etsy shop. Thing is, as much as I liked the idea, I didn’t like the finished product.
It’s just too much. Every bead in there is detailed and when those details are crammed so very close they don’t sing, they screech. So I put it away and forgot it until a few weeks ago. Then, slowly, thoughtfully this time, I pulled out my trusty wirecutters and got to work.
Each link is hand-wrapped, and I think it really does the job. And hey, guess what: there are sill matching earrings.
