This is just a part of a very long necklace! I had the pack of different size grey pearls sitting there for some time before I got the idea to link them all together to make a necklace that I could wear double - one strand high around the neck with the second one long. I was really miffed to find that after all my hard work, the necklace just didn't sit right, the large pearls stand out from the smaller ones too much. I'm afraid it's off to the frog pond with this piece. At least I've got all the pearls to use in other projects and thankfully I used plated wire...

I've made some dodgy pieces in my time but this ring I found really is the pits! I fancied having a go at making a ring but I didn't have a proper mandrel, only an aluminium ring sizer with flat sides. I was so chuffed with it - mainly because it actually fitted - that I wore it quite a bit after I made it. But I can see now that it's a right old mess and I think that lovely big bead deserves much better, don't you?! Off to the frog pond with you!
Feel free to giggle now girls...

As everyone is going to be really busy in the run up to Christmas, we've decided to extend the current Monday Moodboard challenge until the end of the year. So if any of our lovely readers were thinking of joining in with this one you now have a lot more time to create your piece! Please send me your photos or add them to our Flickr pool and I'll post them on the blog as I receive them.
