Inspiration is needed here at McLachlan Design Studio. So I decided to give myself a 52 week challenge, to make one new piece of jewelry per week for a year. It seems like a daunting task but I've decided to go for it. I get into a rut where I don't make anything at all for a long period of time, then inspiration hits and I'll work for several days and make a lot of jewelry, then fizzle out. So this will keep me on a schedule.
This necklace is called Love 4 Turquoise; I had to use the love theme considering it's the month of Love. The center front of the necklace is 4 love knots, made from sterling silver, with a turquoise bead hanging between the center two knots. The sides/back of the necklace are sections of sterling silver Figaro chain separated by turquoise beads. The necklace is between 9 1/2 and ten inches long. You can see more pictures of this necklace in my Bonanza Store.
Check back next Saturday for Week 2 of the challenge. If you would like to challenge me with suggestions of materials or type of jewelry you would like to see, let me know. I'm up for the challenge and you may even get something if I use your inspiration/idea.
Have a great week!
