Playing with Jewelry

I got some itty bitty Czech glass button cabochons in the mail, today.I tried them with some settings,and I am pretty pleased.

I finished a couple of necklaces. One is a diffuser/locket.Because it is a fairly heavy piece, I hung it from a heavy chain. I finished it with one of my favorite antique looking toggle clasps.The other has a piece of Asian fabric captured under glass in a bamboo frame. I wove a black and gold Kumihimo cord to match and finished it with a magnetic clasp.

It’s a Keeper!

I made this necklace to sell, but I think I have to keep it. The cotton cord is hand dyed and painted. That’s one of my very favorite clasps. I made the bail myself from a vintage-looking metal stamping. I like the back as much as the front! The image is decoupaged on the back of a glass nugget, covered with card stock and sealed with Diamond Glaze. I┬áplan on wearing it over a black turtleneck or tee. I’m right proud of me!
