I haven't posted here for sooo long. I've completely changed the style of my jewellery and still have loads to photograph, but I thought I'd share a necklace I made yesterday. I'm working on a big range of necklaces so I'm naming them in alphabetical order, I'm calling this one Amy.

The necklace is 16" in length and is made using vintage anodised flowers which have been stacked in three layers. Behind those there are two antique brass finish branches, and the beads are 10mm onyx rounds. The beads are quite substantial and give the necklace a nice weight. All of the findings are antique brass.

I'm off to have a look at everything people have been making since I last visited, so I'll leave you with the picture Smiley.

The flower reminds me of a piece my grandmother had when I was a kid looking through her jewelry box.  I hadn't thought about that in years. 

I love the necklace!!!  It caught my eye right away.

I love those vintage metal flowers, and i like how you used these bold pearls. i know they're not big but all the vintage metal flowers i have seen were paired with lots of small/sparkling things.
this necklace will make any simple outfit very special.
