I finished a new necklace a couple of nights ago that is a little bit different from any I have done before. Instead of one main textile form, this one has repeated elements going most of the way round the choker wire.
The individual textile elements are based on an earring design. The size of the fabric pieces gets smaller towards the back though this is hardly noticeable looking at the finished item. At first I just planned to use beads between the textile shapes but then I thought that a little bit of variation was needed, so I added some elements embroidered on soluble fabric just like my experiments at the Sue Rangeley workshop I attended.
This was just a simple idea that I decided was worth trying but it has already got me thinking about how I could develop it further – watch this space!
This necklace has just been added to my Etsy shop
If you have any thoughts on this new piece I would love to hear them.
