After I finish a piece of jewellery I usually display the piece on a bust in my lounge room. I get to enjoy the finished item. Often my ideas come from sitting and looking at a piece I have made, how to improve it, make a different version, new ideas/colours etc etc.
Displaying and enjoying my copper and aqua rosette (two posts ago) I realised how it reminded me of when I was younger and one of my sisters used to wear blouses with a tied bow or a frill down the front. I wanted to try another Rosette version and capture that "bow" look in a necklace.
Rosette 3 above does give you the look of a tied bow.
I have a question for you. It is all well and good that I play with beading and create fun, new ideas. I will never stop doing this. Not having seen anyone else make anything similar (which is good) I really do not know if a woman would wear this necklace or the Rosette necklace.
My question is would you wear a necklace like this?
