Greetings from the road!
I knew I’d be away this weekend so I needed to find something creative to do on my car ride.
I’ve owned this necklace for years. It’s my favorite. I love it!
I always wanted to try making a wire floral necklace. Today seemed as good as any!
First I had to choose the right beads for the project from the hundreds I’ve accumulated in my basement.
I was looking for discs, ovals and tear drop beads. I figured out all my possibilities and then reduced my selection to a few. Next, I poly bagged them so I could work on one small flower at a time while in the car.
This is as far as I got. It took longer than I thought. Each bead gets its own wire. This meant I probably twisted over a hundred wires!
Tomorrow I still have a few more flowers to make and then I have to figure out how to wire them all together. I don’t have a book or tutorial or anything, I’m just making it up as I go along.
Hopefully it works out. I itch for new things as the seasons change. You know, as the weather changes, your clothing changes. Everybody likes a little something new. Luckily I don’t have to look any further than my basement!
