Are you on Pinterest? Oh my word, what a wonderful place to be. I love Pinterest. How clever to have a virtual pinboard for everything you love on the web? And keep it all organized! I’ve found that many Pinners don’t actually go forth and use their Pins. Which is so sad. An unfulfilled pin is a waste! I try to redo, use, and get inspired by my pins all the time. Ok, not quite as often as I’d like, but I really do try. This past week, I used 2 of my pins. I’m going to share one of them with you today. HERE‘s the original post where the pin was taken from. And this is one of mine….
I made these necklaces for my son’s teachers. I think they are adorable, and just perfect for those amazing folks that are educating our wee ones. I have often seen these necklaces with just a simple silver chain, and the nest is always silver-toned as well. I wanted to change it up, so I used a very pretty brown. And for the necklace, some pale pink glass beads. Here is my other version.
I’ve got to say, I was surprised at how tough these were to make. Remember, I am a silversmith, so something like this should really have been a piece of cake. But it was tough to get the round wire to wrap around the 3 round beads! This one turned out a bit triangular, but I like it.
I think I may give it another go and put a couple in my Etsy shop. My son’s teachers loved them, so perhaps someone else will too. What do you think? Should I make a couple for my shop? Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
