In a way I’ve been searching for something new lately, but in a way something that would also get myself in touch with a forgotten part of the past. So!…I think I might have found it. While browsing Etsy today, I was overcome with the desire to make necklaces again! Its funny because that’s the jewelry-making phase I went through when I was sixteen, I used to make these super-long necklaces out of all kinds of interesting beads and even started painting a lot of my own beads. Ha I’ll post pictures later I know I still have two of them stored away somewhere. They were a lot of fun…kinda bold and funky and different.
SO, I want to do that again! I’m thinking I want to use mainly stone beads…with some metal and wood beads peppered in here and there. Leaning towards making them all three-stranded…I like that layered and textured look, maybe one or two of them with only one strand. But I’m most excited for the colors!!! Very vibrant and rich color combinations, but some all-neutrals would be stunning as well. Probably won’t start this venture for a couple weeks, collecting the perfect beads is going to take a little bit of time and shopping around. Very excited!! 🙂
