You know how scale is totally lost in photos, well the spools arrived and you need a microscope to see them. So my garland had to scale down.
I painted the spools with Fresco Little Black Dress and stamped onto small flowers with Black Archival using Ellen's stamps.
As you can see, I stuck to green colour scheme because I was restricted in my choice of small flowers.
I threaded a small needle with fine nylon thread….NIGHTMARE…don't normally do fiddly stuff.
Began to thread beads, flowers, spools, beads, etc……aaaagggghhhhhhhhh……..just waiting for it to get all tangled up……..and it didn't???????
I found a necklace fastener in my stash of stuff from when Leandra did the boxes of goodies. Can't remember what she called them. Was it monster boxes ?
Anyway. somehow attached the thread to the fasteners and …..MADE A NECKLACE!!!!!DAH DAH….never made a necklace before.
Trickiest bit was taking a photo and leaving out the turkey neck!!!!!
Ooo this looks fab Hazel and great choice of colour too xxxReplyDelete
Nice interpretation Hazel! Lovely green necklace, the spools are cute and very dinky, perfect for your first piece of jewellery. Well done:-) xxxReplyDelete
Oh Hazel how delightful love it the addition of beads is a really great idea and might have to steal hehe very well done xxxReplyDelete
Fab necklace Hazel! I love how your inspiration from Clare's garland resulted in this piece of jewellery. Loving the green too. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog.ReplyDelete
wow, that's fabulous, Hazel - gorgeous colours. I totally agree about the size of things in photos, you really can't tell what you're getting - but you made the most of these spools.ReplyDelete
Oh lovely necklace Hazel! These are brilliant combo colours and embellishments. It's a great sense!! xxReplyDelete
Yay, this is fab Hazel and looks very trendy actually. Well done on another brilliant take on a PA project. I too agree about the size of things. It's why I really prefer to buy stuff like that at shows (or odd occasion from a rare visit to a craft shop). Helen's right though, you really did make the most of your purchase.ReplyDelete
I think it's darling! :)ReplyDelete
wow this is so cool, what a brilliant way to change up the project to suit your size of spools!ReplyDelete

So great to make use of what you received. I say you are one creative gal. I love this.
Great idea to make a necklace. Pretty and usefulReplyDelete
Wow! Clever you! I think this looks just perfect. I've had that problem with scale when buying online and sometimes I've been really disappointed, but you've adapted what you have brilliantly! I love the colours and you've captured it so well in your photos. Julie Ann xxxReplyDelete
