This necklace was a labor of love. I wanted to channel the spirit of an earlier piece that I had made while in the U.S. four years ago (and I have no pictures of that piece), but I’m all out of crimp covers. So the next best thing was wire-wrapping each bead as I attached it to the soft sterling silver chain. Oh, my fingers. Afterwards I counted my hours of labor according to the number of True Blood episodes that I watched while making it. I do not like that show, for the record, for so many reasons.
These images are of the finished product. It’s a statement piece, that’s for sure. I kind of want to keep it.
