Spring Rain Necklace

About this design:

When I think of Spring Rain, I think of fluidity and movement. This necklace is longer than what I would usually consider. I had a difficult time photoshopping it...but here it is. The necklace makes a "tinkling" sound when I walk, just like rain on the windowsill.


This "contest" was personal for me...Getting me out of my comfort zone. I stink at wrapped loops, but wanted a design that would look best with them. I really made an attempt to use everything in the necklace kit, and I did, except for the African Glass Rounds. I have another idea for them. I added the Arte Medal chain. Oh yeah! Using the Vintaj Patinas was really fun!

    This is beautiful! Nicely done! My wrapped loops aren’t perfect either, yet I tell myself it adds ‘character.’ ;) I love your design.

    Such a beautiful design. You did a great job on this. I don’t do enough practice of wrapped loops. My wire seems to twist no matter how firmly I try to hold the pliers.

    pretty necklace! don’t agonize, wrapped loops get easier (and more even) with practice. (I find it easier if I hold the wire coming out of the bead horizontal, and wrap in a vertical circle.)
