Poppy necklace  

Sunday, March 2, 2008

Since I'm on a chainmail roll, here is my latest creation. Spent the better part of Friday evening and Saturday morning winding and cutting the coil to make the rings for it (two sizes, AR 3 and 6), and Saturday afternoon until late in the night I was working on the necklace. I pulled apart at times bits and pieces of it until I got the design the way I wanted it. Although it did turn out to be come something else than I first envisioned. Oh well...
I named it poppy necklace after the lampwork bead I bought from an Etsy artist, who named the bead 'poppy'. All metal, including the gorgeous heart clasp is sterling silver.

And what I'm doing as my next project? Well I'm just in the middle (ok start) of learning the turkish round mail, using bright aluminium (silver became just too expensive nowadays for learning).
Not the easiest weave to learn though...
