I had a vision of this necklace while sitting at work the other day. I sketched it on the back of a grocery list I'd started. I got home that evening and started it right away. I actually finished it the next night. That's pretty quick for me.
The pendant is a picture of my mother from her wedding day. I did a small collage and soldered it between pieces of glass. All the links are handmade-inspired by an old chain in my stash.
The long beads are wrapped, felted wool that I hand-dyed with easter egg coloring. I then sewed on some seed beads with metallic thread. I made a swirly closure and added some hand-spun fiber, ribbon, and lace to finish. All in all, I'm very pleased with the result- except--I wouldn't put wool around the back of my neck again--kinda itchy!
