Necklace



I've had this on my "to do" list for after returning from Surtex. Now, almost two months later, I finally can check it off. I wanted to make a necklace with some of the silver beads I worked on patterns for with Nina Designs.



I made some earrings to match too.



I purchased the lampwork glass beads for this necklace from Heather Davis. I think they are just gorgeous. The center pendant's text is a sonnet titled Love's Growth by John Donne.

The smaller beads came from a shop in Noe Valley called Forbeadin. My friend Fiona works there. She helped me design and finish these pieces. Thanks, Fiona!

Linda left this comment, but somehow I managed to reject it instead of publish it:

"Dorothy, the silver beads are incredible!! I've been so curious to know about the beads, having seen your patterns for them. I went to Nina's site to see more--they are wonderful."

Thank you, Linda! Now I want to make more necklaces, but silver is getting expensive.
