What's on My Bench??

Today's episode of What's on My Bench is brought to us by JET member and  frequent contributor, Gaetana, of SatinDollCo.:

This necklace came about as the first attempt to make by Godmother a necklace for her birthday present, some months ago. First, I gathered the beads, which included blue or teal glass beads, black glass beads, black onyx teardrop beads, and a gemstone leaf pendant.





Next I started arranging the beads in a pattern for the necklace.

















With so many black beads, I had to make sure to use the blue/teal beads to break up the black.

















All done. Now I need to string the beads on beading wire and finish it off with the findings, such as the clasp.This is the finished product. 


I ended up not sending this one to my Godmother since she's more into earth tones but it found a home the following weekend when my Aunt came over and went through my entire inventory. It went perfectly with her outfit she had on. So that shows there's a piece out for there for everyone.

If you want to learn more about Gaetana, please go to her shop, SatinDollCo. Stay tuned to next Saturday, for another installation of What's on My Bench??
