Pretty in Pink


About this design:

Another knotted tassel necklace this time with a gorgeous salmon pink tassel. I used salmon pink jade rondelles, smoky quartz and rhinestone beads. Tried to match the colors in the beaded top of the tassel. I love the color combo of salmon and brown.

Components:

jade rondelles, Smoky Quartz, rhinestone rondelles, salmon pink beaded silk tassel

    This is as fabulous as all the others! Love the smoky quartz with pink/salmon. Does it take long to complete one of these with all the knotting? I tried the ‘knotter’ tool from a friend–too complicated for me–I’ll stick with my awl! Great work! :)

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments. Yes, Crystal Canary, the long knotted necklaces take me anywhere from 3 to 4 hours to complete. Shorter necklaces and bracelets are a lot faster but I love long necklaces so I’ll keep making them. I’ll also continue doing stringing and wire wrapping. I’m just happy to add knotting to my skill set now. Always trying to upgrade my skills and try new techniques. I just love making and wearing beautiful things. As they say, so many jewelry ideas to make, so little time!

    I agree, not enough time to ‘Bead’! I have more half-finished projects than anyone–all in little bins stacked up. I like to get the project started when the idea hits, as my sketches don’t call to mind my vision as well; then I’ll spend a day or two just completing them all. It works for me I guess. I love seeing the idea evolve into a finished result. Keep up the great work and keep aspiring to try new techniques! :)
