New Necklace

I’m trying to learn how to make 18th C beaded necklaces. Just simple strings of pearls (or similar round gemstone beads) tied with ribbons, inspired by the necklaces often seen in 18th C portraits.

First up were some burgundy glass imitation pearls. I made the necklace long enough so that it can be wrapped twice around my neck before tying. I’m still working on perfecting the way that the jump rings are attached, so that they are secure. But I’m happy with this early attempt.

On to the pictures!

Matches surprisingly well with my Catwoman figure in the background!
