A BIRTHDAY NECKLACE

Already this year I have made presents for my friends Barbara’s 60th and Nicole’s 40th.  Now it is the turn of my sister-in-law Kathy who is 50 today.

These are not the best photos ever taken, snapped in a rush before I wrapped the necklace and earrings to give them to her yesterday.  But it gives an idea of the finished result.  I used some lovely faceted carnelian beads, teamed with some pretty glass beads which seem to be silver paint with a brown pattern over the top.

I used some copper-effect circles and silver jump rings to blend with the beads.  Also a record number of loops that I had to make myself – I hope they hold and the necklace doesn’t fall apart !!
