A couple of years ago I took a class from Erin Siegel where we learned to make earrings using Irish waxed linen. I’ve been happily knotting linen cording ever since!
When I first heard that Diana was hosting a waxed linen blog hop, I imagined that I would have quite a few pieces of new jewelry to show today. But I’ve been so wrapped up in making ceramic pendants lately, that it wasn’t until last night that I started to work on a necklace.
However, I do love working with with waxed linen, so making this necklace was a pleasure.
The dark blue ceramic beads are from Kazuri Beads. There’s some recycled glass and Czech glass beads, too. I like the way that the linen knots separate the beads, so they stand out more and the way it adds an extra bit of color.
I am looking forward to visiting all the other participants in this blog hop. Their creations will be so inspiring. I’d encourage you to visit their blogs too. The links are below.
I am always delighted to read your comments! Hope to hear from you.
