I knew I wanted to have two interlocking circles, and I also wanted to incorporate one of my old necklaces. I started by drawing two circles on some felt using some glasses and bowls as a template. Then I sewed all the yellow heart-shaped beads to one circle, and round glittery beads to the other circle. I filled it in with small bronze-colored beads that I suspect have been going around the family circles since the 80s waiting to be used!
It’s such a nice necklace to wear, it has such a good weight to it, and the earring doesn’t stick to your body which makes it perfect for me and my allergies.
All made from scraps. All it took was a lot of patience, a virtue I seem to have a lot of these days! I haven’t made a necklace in quite a while, but I feel my hands start to get itchy when I look through my pictures. It is so relaxing to sit and sew beads and listen to an audiobook or a lecture or something.
