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. 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.
