do ya feel lucky today??
wellll, do ya'??!!
(always wanted to say that once in my life!)
((note to self, cross off Clint's saying on bucket list))
well, in honor of St. Patrick's day,
and as that shamrock green is
not my color,
my gift to you is ~
sharing my "anthropologie" inspired stone necklace
mini tutorial instead!!
so grab your pretties and lets begin!!
my inspiration is taken from all the pretties in the anthro jewelry section
a lot of smooth, polished stones are being used.
I really just wanted a pretty little something to wear this weekend to the sea:)
so the colors I chose for this, were muted and stormy sky colors.
when I spied this at Target, I thought
and then, when I turned it over to check out the price,
was my reply, as it had been marked down.
loved the smoothness,
and the color was just what I was after.
I took a snippet of neutral lace
and stitched the top of it to gather it a bit,
and then put it through the jump ring and stitched it on,
next came the flower.
now, there are many tutorials on the "burned edge" flowers
so if your not sure about these
just google it and you will find all the info you need!
I made a few in different sizes in the sea grey color I was after
and stacked them until I was happy with the shape,
then just stitched them together in the center.
add a vintage pearl drop earring...
a pretty little flower for my necklace for the sea:)
"sea" how pretty it looks on?!
I also made a lovely sea silk tie bracelet
I just couldn't help myself...
one of my most favorite shades...
and the best part about this piece is,
I can also wear it as a choker necklace too:
I hope you were inspired to try your hand
at making something new and lovely to wear...
I will be sharing this over at Common Ground's
come see what other "luck" you have in finding something inspiring!
here's to the lovely shade of sea grey!
