While organizing photos of my work, I came across photos of a necklace that I made for a freeform jewelry exchange a few years ago. This is one of four pieces I created for the exchange. I am so happy that I found these photos, as I had forgotton where I had saved them and I thought that they were lost! It is made in the same method as the "Jewels of the Sea" necklace; I created many scrumbles and pinned them on my necklace form until I had an arrangement I was happy with. What is really unique about this necklace is the pieces of broken vintage china I included. In case you are wondering, I used a plate that was already broken and chipped. I wouldn't have had the heart to break a perfect plate! I did some embroidery on nylon net to make the lacy top for the center pendant. I also cut leaf shapes out of felt and embroidered the details. There are also a few beads and sequins sprinkled around. A true multi-media piece!
