You may remember me showing you a deco-style pendant I was working on in a previous post, well it’s finished and I am so, so pleased with it. It was definitely a labour of love, as it took ages to bead all those links, but considering I didn’t have a pattern written down and just did what felt right, it could have taken a lot longer!!
Here is the finished product:
I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to use as a clasp. I had considered a slide clasp, but couldn’t find one long enough, but when I was at Bead & Banter at The Bead Shop Scotland with Lesley, Sigrid, Mary and Shirley, I saw a square ring which was a perfect match (this is where I bought the large square and olive fire-polished rounds as well).
This is the clasp – I love it, even it I do say so myself – it’s absolutely perfect, especially as I have short hair so it’s on show:
I’ve already worn it a couple of times and was so pleased the first time; we were in a restaurant in London and when we were being seated the waitress commented on it. She was stunned the I had made it, so I took it off to give her a closer look :D:D.
If you’re on Facebook, I’d love you to follow the Oodles of Obliciousness page.
I have a bit of a backlog of other stuff to show, so will be back to blogging more regularly again.
