Yes, yes, yes! I’ve ALWAYS wanted to make pride jewellery. Nothing like a rainbow to cheer things up! So I picked out a bunch of 12mm Swarovski glass beads yesterday and made a necklace today!
I’m basically addicted to these beads. They’ve got that pearly sheen to them that I love. And I especially like that fact that the colours are pretty pastelist. A little more subtle and less in-your-face. A lot of pride edition stuff are pretty ‘screamo’, so I guess this is a good deviation from the norm.
Of course, nothing escapes chainmaille when it’s on my workspace. Added a unit of the byzantine weave above each bead to create more visual interest. I love the decorative bead caps with the beads too. I’m very addicted to these bead caps with the glass beads.
I’ll make this available for purchase this Saturday at Flea-tique! at SAM@8Q. Pride necklace going at S$35 each. I will definitely make a few more variations of the theme.
P.S. Once again, Flea-tique! Late Night Edition happening on 7 Nov, this coming Saturday, at SAM@8Q, from 6.00PM to 1.00AM. Facebook event page here.
