I made up this necklace on a leather cord today… two stunning faceted ambers cradling a “frames”… so dramatic and simple, especially on the black leather. (I was quite pleased with myself!)
I should know by now that whenever I get that slightly smug feeling with Trollbeads that I’m due to be taken down a notch.
Just look at what the amazing MS brought into Tartooful this afternoon:
I am humbled.
The one thing that all of MS’s creations have in common is that she selects her individual beads very carefully. That is to say, that her phenomenal designs are special, beginning right down with each and every bead.
This necklace is no exception. Every one of these ambers is an outstanding example, either in colour, texture, sparkling inclusions, shape or size. The range of colour displayed here is absolutely gorgeous, and the way she has graduated in size quite amazing.
I always learn something in chats with MS. For example, she pointed out that the necklace is not as heavy as it might appear, as the amber is significantly lighter than the natural stones or glass beads. Also, I had never considered that a full necklace would disperse the weight more evenly across the shoulders, making it more comfortable.
Today’s Trollbeads lesson for me? There’s always something new to learn…
