All I wanted was a sign on the last day

blue necklace

I came up with another way to use those crocheted circles of waxed cotton. This idea popped into my head almost fully formed. Which is certainly nice, on when it occasionally happens. I was planning to embellish one or two of the circles, either with a silver border (didn't sit right) or with buttons (too much going on). In the end, the simple version was the best. I used sterling silver chain and jump rings to join them all together.

This was a birthday present for my sister. Didn't she style it nicely with her blue tops?

I really, really love the look of that necklace! I think you're right to keep it simple and unadorned. Gorgeous.

So lovely! Superb colour, fabulous way of joining the circles! I started a similar project years ago (not joined with chain though) but never quite finished it. But yours exceeds mine in so many ways!! Fantastic!
