This is a necklace I made for myself for a TV talk show I just had today. Planning the outfit for the show, which by the way was a plain chiffon blouse in the softest peach you can imagine over plain black trousers, I wanted to make a vivid, playful necklace that would give life and texture to the blouse.
Immediately a beaded butterfly came to mind surrounded by flowers - just as you see it, so I made a couple of my favourite flowers - just as I did for this one not long ago.
The beads as you see them, were not part of the original design. As a matter of fact I wanted the beaded chain to hang under the flowers, but it was not good- not good at all - take my word for it - and I tried putting those short beaded chains at the side and quite liked how the whole piece came together when I did. And that is how my newest necklace was born.
As for the TV show, it was fantastic! (Follow my insta stories!!!) I was invited over for a chat due to my feature in the Artful Blogging Magazine. I had the greatest time and talked my heart out. I talked about the feature, my blog and how everything started in the first place.
The lighting in the studio was not intended to make great smartphone photos so here's a grainy one with my hosts Tino & Spasiya.
Phew. I am off to chill and let all emotions quiet down.
