Carol’s Necklace

Surely, it happens to all beaders sometimes that a friendly neighbour gives them a bag full of discarded jewelry and to receive that is like laying one’s hands on a precious treasure.

This time it came from an ex-beader. She had her old stash of beads hidden in the attic for 40 years! Not only it contained all kinds of good quality seed beads but also 3 boxes of charlottes. Charlotte cut seed beads have one cut facet that makes them sparkle. Apparently they are quite hard to find these days. So I was over the moon when I saw them.

I was so grateful that I offered to make her a necklace. And as she adores herringbone cord this is the result.

All the beads used in this one were in her own stash apart from the turquoise ones and I named it after her, of course. I didn’t use the charlottes. Couldn’t part with them yet. This necklace looks much nicer when it is actually worn.
