I made these necklaces for my son's teachers. I think they are adorable, and just perfect for those amazing folks that are educating our wee ones. I have often seen these necklaces with just a simple silver chain, and the nest is always silver-toned as well. I wanted to change it up, so I used a very pretty brown. And for the necklace, some pale pink glass beads. Here is my other version.
I've got to say, I was surprised at how tough these were to make. Remember, I am a silversmith, so something like this should really have been a piece of cake. But it was tough to get the round wire to wrap around the 3 round beads! This one turned out a bit triangular, but I like it.
I think I may give it another go and put a couple in my Etsy shop. My son's teachers loved them, so perhaps someone else will too. What do you think? Should I make a couple for my shop? Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
