Black and White Jewelry Challenge

Sally from the Studio Sublime challenged us to a black and white jewelery challenge, I had ideas immediately.  I wanted to create 2 pieces one mainly black and one mainly white.BW Badge I wanted a long black necklace that I could throw on and a pearl necklace with an unexpected pop of black.

I put both on silk and got to work, the black was not coming along so I focused on the pearls.

I hand knotted the pearls on black silk and added a black ceramic bead by Karen Totten of  Starry Road Studio.

I want to finish it with ribbon or chain. I have black chain from Fallen Angel Brass, but it seems a bit on the small  side, so I will double or triple it or buy larger chain.

It has been a while since I have created it felt good to be in the studio, thanks Sally for issuing the challenge. You can see all the participants below.
