Finally finished

I am still trying to finish all the half done projects I have. This is one project I started last year just after Dad's 80th birthday (His 81st is in a week!) and it has sat uncompleted all that time. I have thought about it a lot, especially when I have wanted to wear a long necklace, but not actually done anything about it.

Last night while watching TV I was not feeling really motivated, wanted to quilt but did not have the omph. So I took out my Jewelry making things and finished this. I am thrilled that it is finished and I can wear it.
My preference in jewelry has always been natural things. So I tend toward only gold and silver and when making my own I use a lot of freshwater pearls - I love love love them.

So this is very fine Stirling Silver chain (as any thicker just costs so much), small (4mm) freshwater grey and natural pearls. Even though I am not Catholic I was thinking along the lines of a rosary when I was making this. I even made the cross at the bottom. I then added another pair of natural freshwater earings. They are 10mm pearls using Stirling Silver hoops.

These are the parties I link to.

  1. Very nice! I tried my hand at jewelry making years ago but to be honest, all my supplies are up in the attic{shame on me}. Id love to learn how to hand stamp silver jewelry as gifts for friends.
    Im visiting from the Sew Darn Crafty linkup. Have a lovely weekend! ;)

    1. Thanks for visiting. I too have my jewelry stuffed stashed a lot. Hence the delay in finishing.
