I have a dress with a ridiculously plunging neckline- out of character. And while I like jewelry, my budget does not and besides I prefer simple to outrageous. Hence the problem. Dress with said neckline looks even more "plungy" with tiny jewelry. So I thought I would tat a pendant. There was no question in my mind which piece. I have loved Frivole's Les P'tits Oiseaux since she made it available. Interestingly, my dress is also Tardis blue (pure coincidence I swear- I bought mine last year) so I had the thread and even some interesting beads from Joann's.
Alas, the bead was just not the right size. So I distattified and tried the smallest bead. No again. So, snip, snip, in the bin.
Back to the drawing board. I had seen on Frivole's blog her version of Marilee's beautiful necklace, Newcastle. She made it without the outside round and liked it so I gave it a try.
|motif #15 (at least the bead fits)|
Wish that were my neck! The color is something between the three you see.
