A slight alteration

You may remember from a previous post that I had made a bracelet but it was too small, I was going to re-string it and did suggest that it might not remain a bracelet.  Well, it has become a very lovely necklace.

 As you can see the hand woven beads remain and I have added some big hole beads over some seed beads which give the necklace some movement.  I really like this style of necklace, I made one similar for myself a while ago and I wear it a lot. 
This is a lively colourful version which also has some hand woven beads.  I also made a pair of earrings to match this necklace, but I forgot to take a picture of them.  I have also dipped into my copper wire box this week.

This design is based on the 'Brangle' that I made during a workshop with Lush and Mizgeorge.  I treated myself to one of Jolene's mini-mo boxes of glassy goodies!  The parcel contains some twisties, murrini and shards.  The mini-mo is  a great for pushing me out of my comfort zone of my usual pallette.  I rarely work in yellow and lime greens but I am pleased with the way this turned out.

I am hoping to get my act together and to get these pieces and others posted on Folksy for sale so I will keep you posted.  

Enjoy the sun while it's still shining folks!
