Looking through my drafts and I found this old blog post
with my first ever
beading around a cab necklace.
Thought I would post it today...
I love Sophia Coppola's film Marie Antoinette
it's such a great source of inspiration with its
pastel costume colour scheme
and of course its fabulous
location in the palace of Versailles.
I re-watched it and just had to make something afterwards!
So this necklace is a flight of fantasy with the idea being that
it could be a necklace that Marie could have worn with a
cameo of her daughter (Marie Therese) attached.
My very first attempt at beading around a cameo here!
It's not a 'try it a few times then post it first attempt'.
It's a genuine first try ' I had no idea at all what to do attempt!'
Which is why there are obvious flaws.
It was a learning project and it shows.
That's all part of the fun though.
I am super pleased with the top half of the necklace
and I can cut off
the cameo dangle if I want to
and wear the top half alone.
Seems a shame to cut it up though.
- I think I will keep it as a learning project.
Nice to look back on these things :-)
