Tonight I put together the red-coral-bead-and-coin necklace I’d been planning to do for ages. It turned out really well. I’ll have to wear it over a shirt, obviously, because otherwise the coins will turn my skin green. I’m thinking maybe some kind of shimmery turtleneck from the Wintersilks catalog. Good excuse to go shopping, methinks. I have plenty enough beads and coins to make a matching bracelet and earrings, too, but I’ll do those another day.
I’m also going to make a replica of the Egyptian disk necklace and bracelet that the Metropolitan Museum is selling for $155. Who’s to know mine’s made from bead caps from Fire Mountain Gems and cost me less than $15 when all is said and done?
I’m going to have to go through my necklace hanger and put away the ones I seldom wear. I guess I should start looking for a new jewelry box, too. Or see if anyone wants to take some of these necklaces off my hands (or neck).
