6 pieces and counting!
That's the number of necklaces I've made trying to find jewellery that will work with THAT dress!
I don't think I have ever been so challenged trying to put together an ensemble before.
I had my heart set on using wood in the design to tie it in with the blackish-brown of the dress. So from the beads I bought at the wholesalers last week, I used the kukui nuts and faceted wooden beads. To make it less heavy visually, I broke it up with some lovely metallic chocolate sea-themed elements.
So I'm heading back to the drawing board and I'm going to totally rethink my original concept.....
I'll keep you posted!
'Til next time......
