Saturday afternoon I gave myself a deadline to make a new necklace to wear when meeting a friend across the mountain to go antiquing and out to dinner.
My approach to jewelry making is much the same as the one I use for quiltmaking. Rarely do I use a pattern or plan out a design. Mostly I just try to work with what I have. In this case I spread out the materials I had with me, and then started playing around with arrangements.
Some of the components include moss agates wrapped earlier, a quartz purchased at the last Bead Fest, a vintage bead, some new beads and a crystal. I also used an element from Industrial Chic, one of my favorites, the witch hazel tin.
Friday night we saw a rainbow.
