“Vineyard Necklace”


Description from EPBCornell: Just an idea: 3 strands twisted of the porcelain with occasional Czech glass mixed in. These two beads look made to go together and inspired the whole thing. (Tip: If you twist stringing cord or wire in the same direction before attaching/tying it at the end, it will keep strands twisted together.) May use cord to braid/macrame a buttonhole to fasten with button, or make toggle bar out of right loop of father time to toggle through heavy brass jump ring. Could shorten bead strands and make up the difference with silk ribbon through jump rings. Can make a pendant like a cluster of red grapes, either shiny or matte, working off base of a tiny length of chain, using garnet beads and headpins, adding spare leaves and curling ends of headpins to stick out in places for vines. Whaddaya think?
