I bought a batch of cut garnet beads in December and have been pulling them out and petting them once in a while. Finally it became clear what they wanted to be and last week I made them into this necklace.
I’ve always made this version of the Wild Geese necklace in a choker length, but I just kept going until all I had left was a little pinch of beads.
These pictures really don’t do it justice; it’s slinky and luxurious and I’m enjoying playing with it, swishing it across the table. It makes a sound like the beach, which goes well with the heat wave we’ve been having.
