Ok. So firstly I should wear necklaces more often. Generally I should probably accessorise more, because it tends to make you look more put together, and, theoretically it’s fun. Only problem is that i can’t find accessories that i like.
Back? Ok. So long story short, I made one of my own, using wire i bought about 4 years ago, and beads and buttons I’ve been thrifting from the crafty-hospice shop for the last few months. There is also a bead from my Gifty3 stash, and wooden beads my sister gave me, as well as plastic beads from japanese pokemon jewelry, and a shell button I got at Liberty when I started knitting kids stuff for friends. Oh and oval beads from a braclet I bought about six months before I finished my degree. Also the chain is from the necklace my sister bought me for graduating. I’m intending to share it between this and the pendant she got me. 🙂
Point being, the final piece is full of lots of little memories – which is a very cool side of the Use What You Have challenge that I hadn’t considered before.
(Talking of memories – the tee is an old David Devant and His Spirit Wife teeshirt that I cut into a V-neck, and wore on my wedding day until I put on my dress. 🙂
