We must always remember, that while we might be broken a bit...we are still beautiful.
This multi-strand necklace was created with a strand of quartz, a chain built of labradorite chips and a string of Swarovski crystals with Czech beads and bronze wire.
I made links with bronze wire and rough garnet nuggets and on the opposite side I made a link with a jasper pendant, which I broke while making.
I'm calling this necklace "More Than Skin Deep". While attempting to push the wire through the jasper pendant it broke. OMG! It broke. I used other words than that. 😬
What I found though, is that the flower-like design went through the whole piece. From one side to the other. I found the pendant beautiful, while still broken. I sealed the stone and continued work on the necklace.
With the same wire, only in a heavy gauge, I made a simple hook for the clasp and finished with vintage ribbon I picked up at a flea market. The ribbon adds a shabby chic look to this necklace.
This necklace hangs 28". It is easily shortened or lengthened, as I used the ribbon.
