Aurora Borealis Necklace
Things have not been very good around here lately. It’s mostly recession woes, and I am trying to stay positive. This was my last full week of teaching, so I may be able to get more blogging/commenting done starting next week. I have also been buying used books for an online bookseller, and I will be dropping off my first boxes of books in L.A. next week. I am interested to see if I will make enough for it to be worth my while.
One good thing about stress, is it forces me to be artistic. I find it so soothing being surrounded by all sorts of bits and pieces of vintage and new jewelry. There is a subtle excitement in not knowing what the finished piece will look like till it’s done.
This necklace was actually made from a vintage belt. I really liked the bold links, so I cut it down to necklace size then attached a vintage aurora borealis rhinestone earring as a pendant.
I have made a few other pieces too, but this is the only new one I’ve photographed yet. I will be putting them up in my etsy store.
