New Necklace

I finished up this necklace over a month ago, but haven't gotten any pictures posted.  I know, I've been really bad about blog posts as of late.  And, well to be honest, I've not been in that creative of a mood. 

I have a bunch of projects either half started or need to be started, but I've had very little motivation to do any of them.  I just think all the projects around the house are getting in the way.  And now it's spring, so major projects will be started (hopefully my studio will be one of the first).

But I'm gonna try and get things posted up here and try to get some new projects done, I promise.

But back to the necklace.  I am having a lot of fun making really simple bead embroidered brooches and pendents (when I get anytime to actually bead, see above statement).  And this one was no exception. 

I used a small rectangle cat's eye cabochon for the center and just went to town with pink, brown, pearl, and gold beads.  I'm in love with the color combo.

I lined this baby with soft brown leather and added some pink and gold beaded edges.  And I made one of my other favorite things, a spiral rope to finish it all off.  And this is a double spiral rope, so it's really full and beautiful.  And boy is it sparkly.

I like this a lot and I'm hoping to get a few more made before the show season starts (even though I'm only doing a few shows this year).

Now I just need to get the motivation to get this listed in my esty store (as well as all the other things I have waiting to be listed).  I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! ;-)

What an interesting piece! I love the simplicity along with the angles!

Hang in there on the creative rut...this too shall pass :)

Thanks. This was quite a different piece, but I think it turned out pretty nice. ;-)
