Week 14-Silver and Crazy Lace Necklace



Lately rice-shaped beads have really been appealing to me. I don't usually wear pink but I bought a really cute dark pink top from Anthropologie and it really needed something bold to fill in the neckline. These beads are from Limabeads and they're dyed crazy lace agate. The shape of the links was inspired by a reproduction of an antique necklace that I saw in a museum catalog once upon a time. I made the headpins by hammering the ends of 22 gauge wire.
