KT_Necklace

Earlier I wrote – KT commissioned me to re-design a necklace she had.
I hadn’t seen it yet – however I told her to send it ahead and I’d do what I could.

Necklace - Indian Inspiration 2

This necklace I made years and years ago out of fairly cheap parts…mostly base metals, plastic and painted wood beads. It still gets compliments any time I wear it. Just goes to show that good design in the cheapest materials can fool the eye nicely.

I especially like the pseudo Indian feel which was inspired […]
