Months ago, I bought a big agate slice for £2 at a local charity shop, with one intention:
“I’ll make a giant necklace!”
Then it sat in a drawer for ages, partly wire-wrapped, because I hadn’t really decided what I was doing.
Eventually I put this necklace together using an old chain belt, some jewellery chain, small pieces of amethyst, embroidery thread, spikes, and the usual assortment of jump rings and clasps :)
My necklace was inspired by Assad Mounser’s ‘Wild Horses Mega Collar’ (F/W 2011 collection):
Obviously mine is much smaller!
I utterly love Assad Mounser’s designs. Sadly there’s no chance of my affording any of them! So I was happy to be able to pull my own necklace together. It took about a day and a half to get finished--weaving all that chain together with embroidery thread took ages!
