Tile Necklaces


About this design:

I've had these ephemera tiles from Skye Jewels forever, and I finally decided to put them to use. I didn't like the filigree on the first one, but it messed up the tile a bit, so I decided to live with it. The second is a little plain, but I hope it will appeal to someone next week at the Sunday Market.

Components:

Ephemera tiles, brass filigree, crystals, pearls, beadcaps, Czech glass flowers, brass chain and clasp, gunmetal chain and clasp.

    WOW, Susie!!! I’d buy them both! You have totally mastered the balanced asymmetry and less is more aesthetic that highlights the focals!! I am SOOO impressed!!

    I smell Spring! Such pretty design. Especially the pink and green. I adore pink with green..there’s something almost magical in that color combination.

    Pretty, pretty!
    Are the tile beads actually on tile, like monopoly pieces, or microscope slides, or ??? Thanks!

    Thank you all for the lovely comments! As always, they make my day! :)

    Eeka, The tiles seem to be some sort of wooden product. They are undriiled, but can be drilled anyway you desire. I had a square one with a butterfly that was undrilled, I just wrapped it in a filigree.
