working on...

This one could take some time. It is a herringbone stitch tube necklace. Just 3 centimeters took 2 hours....

Well, I finished the necklace. Not something you could wear everyday. I took about 5 hours to finish.

Stay tuned for the next is a doozy!

griffin silk cord necklace/lariat

I finished the necklace in my previous post, but I want it to be checked by my teacher before I post about it, so I'll probably post about this necklace next week.

In the meantime, I wanted to show you a necklace/lariat that I made using Griffin silk cord. I used carnelian chips, some turquoise and some colored shell flowers. It is very versatile.

By attaching a clasp at one end, you can clamp onto any area and use this as a lariat.

And by putting a large stone at the end, you can clamp onto the end and use this as a necklace.

It took awhile to make this, but I'm happy with the results. The thing I really like about the Griffin cord is that there is a needle already attached, so there is no need to worry about threading the needle.
