1st Goal for July Complete! Sarah

Back in June I posted that I wanted to make a statement necklace with some Vintaj components and these lovely white and bronze beads that I rescued from a half made necklace. As I was working the soft colours whispered rather than shouted so I decided against a large statement necklace and instead decided to play to the vintage feel of the components. I started by making some wrapped loop links with the bronze beads and joined them with jump rings, but that wasn't quite right so I made little love knots to join the links instead. I wanted the focus to be at the front so I added pre-made chain to the sides and made a large ruffly flower in circular netting for the focal. I am quite happy with it, but still want to make a statement necklace!

In all honesty Sarah, that's my kind of statement necklace. It would look amazing with summer clothes or an off shoulder dress. Love it!

That's gorgeous Sarah, and I love how you've put it all together! The pendant is fab and your love knots work very well :)

That's really lovely, and I agree with Clair, it's a very sophisticated take on a statement necklace.
