Vintage Medallion Necklace
I've been away at a meeting the past couple of days, but I did manage to finish my first Vintage Medallion necklace before I left. I love making this necklace design by Tamara Scott because it incorporates my favorite stitches; netting, peyote, and brick stitch. I made it to wear with a black and white dotted skirt, so I chose opaque white fire polished glass beads mixed with jet, hermatite and silver Swarovski's to embellish the netted band. It was a challenge searching through my stash for just the right pieces for the focal. A shell button layered with an 8mm silver disc and a 6mm crystal jet rondelle brought just the right amount of color.
I wore it to dinner and thought it was a nice complement to my skirt, but it proved to be the perfect piece for what another woman was wearing at the event. After learning I had made it, and trying it on, she asked me to make one for her!
