Cashmere Necklace

About this design:

Necklace to match the bracelet...finally. I have been unable to make this because I could not find copper filigree disks that matched the ones I used for the bracelet. I could find silver, gunmetal, brass but no copper. So.....nail polish to the rescue again. A coppery brown color from Maybelline. Painted brass disks, rubbed it off, painted again, get the color right.

I currently cannot be online much because I have little data time case anyone was wondering. 4 days left with less than 10%.... So I've been watching movies...watching aliens and zombies get their butts kicked.


Brown shell pearls from Muddy Spring Mix. Czech Cashmere Picasso Luster Glass. Freshwater Pearl Nuggets. Copper Pendant. Copper chain, jump rings, lobster clasp, heart toggle. Brass filigree disks + Maybelline copper brown nail polish.

    I love the soft colors, the focals and how clever you were about the nail polish. Too bad about the data plan, but maybe you can use the time to make more great pieces.

    Frida says:

    Yes me too is worried, I hope she’s safe and just have a lots to do! Sometimes I have been gone from LB quite long times and that hasn’t been because I don’t love this place and the persons here, just that I had a lot to do and yes me being a bít lazy (hope not to be a stranger from here again) Other people have dissapeared from here that I truly miss and hope they will come back. Hope Asia is back soon!

    Cuddle your furbabies from me. Maybe you doing some more beautiful jewelry? Hugs to you my friend.
