Leather and Pink…

The Journey of How I Used a Color I am Not Fond of…

Here is how it happened…

I was shopping at one of my favorite places to get my crafting supplies and stopped by the stand which had short strands of beads on it.  As I looked at the glass hearts, circles, leaves, and squiggles, I saw the swirl you see in the picture.  I was going to dismiss it at first, but my muse had already placed in a jewelry piece and, therefore, I had to purchase it.  I had the leather cord in my beading supplies for quite some time and had no clue, until then, what I was going to do with it.

The piece came together one night, as I was sitting my bedroom watching TV.  It took me about two hours, give or take, to braid and fashion the adjustable closure.

The prop is a paper flower that I made during a how-to video.  I thought it made the necklace pop out of the picture more.
