This is one of the pieces I am working on today. It started with the vintage plastic daffodil piece that I purchased recently. I got two of them, the other is black and has a morning glory, I think. Evidently at some point in the past, these were part of a flower of the month series. Anyway, I saw them and liked them. Since they were both the same size, I drafted the setting in PowerPoint so I could use it for the second one. I draft a lot by hand – especially something irregular that wouldn’t be repeated. However, if it’s something that I think might need again, then I use PowerPoint. I really need to find a more robust drawing software but don’t feel like taking the time to learn one right now.
This is where I think I am heading with the necklace. I like the warmth that the chrysocolla beads bring to the piece. I also like the addition of other flower elements with the two brass pieces. They have three loops. If I do use them, I will remove the center loop and file it smooth. I’m not sure what happens next with the rest of the necklace. I think once I get this part pulled together, the rest will reveal itself. It will be a surprise for you and me both.
