The hardest necklace I've ever had to do!

I was asked recently to make this unusual necklace.  I've not seen one like it before and she was having difficulty finding one.  It's like a huge choker which resembles the necklace hoops worn by African ladies, the Masai Mara?  I don't know anyway, flowing from the choker bit are strands of beads which fall right down to the navel.  it's huge!  I have added in some crystals to give it some sparkle, but for the most part it is made of acrylic gold beads.  Even so it's still amazingly heavy, I don't envy this lady wearing it at all to be honest.  I just hope it does the job for her. 

The upshot is, however, that she wants me to be featured in a magazine, I've no idea which one, but it could very good exposure, so we'll see.  I'll keep you posted and let you know which one.

stay safe



  1. Wow! That would be fantastic exposure for you! I hope something comes of this!

  2. Good luck with everything, magazine exposure would be great!

  3. I'll update you on the outcome on the next blog! coming ..... now!

  4. well, after quite a while of waiting, the lady sent me some photos in an email saying how much she liked her necklace. Actually it looks great on her so I was really really pleased that she took the time and trouble to send them through. I can't add them in here, but maybe I could post them up separately. no sigh of magazine though :( xx
