What's up the classic pearls Heath?
Well, I thought it would be funny to copy Anne Boleyn's famous B necklace. I'm thinking of making a few of these for some pre-teen nieces on my gift list, of course using their initials. The monogram beads are an antiqued gold with touches of light blue and white washed. The back are the lily pattern that you've seen on some of my other beads.
A complete view of the necklace. Finished off with chain for an adjustable length.
Another design possibility, a little more me. I used brass chain & rings, pearls in gold, lemon faceted glass and a few stones.
And a detail of the monogram bead.
So what do you think? I love them for gifts. They are bit subdued and abstracted. I could also see them used in some non-jewelry projects for a new bride.
