All that glitters

Long gemstone necklace with turquoise, onyx & agate

Day 258: Chunky Necklace

It’s been awhile since I made jewelry. I have a substantial amount of jewelry supplies, however. It’s like scrapbooking. I’m pretty sure everyone knows someone who was so into it before and had to have every little fancy schmancey tool with a purpose.. but now she never takes pictures anymore because she’s self-conscious about her burgeoning doublechin (and honestly who wants to look at that) and really she should get back into it and stop wasting them or just donate the stuff to her perky cousin who just got married and make it HER box of crap. 😉

So I decided for today’s artwork, I’d make myself a necklace to go with the outfit I’m planning to wear on Sunday when I give my I-am-awesome-elevator-speech to the lovely people at Bravo and hope they decide to put me on their show. Only I forgot how long it takes to make necklaces and now it’s nearly 11 pm. Yowza! Note to self: start earlier than 8 pm tomorrow.

    • 🙂 Thanks Carrie! I used to sell jewelry in my etsy shop. I still have some earrings in there, but necklaces take up so many supplies and time I just haven’t done them in awhile. Maybe I’ll get back to it one of these days. 🙂 Have a good one!

    Nice work Marianne! Lindsey and I still can’t get those little twisty curves right with the metal, even though you showed her how. Oh, and Linds and I both have those mentioned boxes of ‘crap’ as well… maybe I should pull that out and get started on Christmas gifts.
