Using Leftovers: Making a “Collage” Necklace

Left: A necklace I made using bits and pieces left over from other projects; things waiting to be put away. (A) is a hook and eye clasp with an amethyst round bead made for another project. (B) is one of three loops of wire used in this necklace that were an experiment in wrapping finer guage wire around loops of wire to make necklace "components." (C) is a leftover ceramic bead that actually is more green than it looks in this image so it matches the green facetted beads elsewhere in the necklace. The necklace, like so much that I make, is made to be asymetrical. Click on the image to view an enlargement.

For some reason I have it in my mind that readers of my blog will be spending their weekend cleaning, and culling, and moving out old supplies. It's probably just me. But in that vein I happened last Saturday (a week ago) night to walk by a bead tray that was sitting on one of my work tables. There were several beads that really needed to be sorted out and put "back" so that they could have a life in another project.
