What to make next?
posted by Colleen Shirazi, April 28, 2007 at 12:56 AM (Pacific)

Did a little clothes shopping today, went to some of that Proenza Schouler stuff. I haven't been following their guest-designers project too closely but it was marked half off and looked pretty decent. Last summer I got some of those Mossimo tee shirts and tank tops; frankly I'm not that happy with them. I don't think some of them are going to last a full year. So I'm game to try something new.

I also got a black dress, fairly sure it's this one:

Mossimo Black: Crossover Linen Dress - Ebony

Not something I'd normally buy, but I need an inexpensive black summer dress which is machine washable.

Now I need to make a necklace to go with this dress. Really have no clue what to make...sometimes it would appear that people who make jewelry have too many choices. :)

My first thought was crystals...clear or black ones, or both. Here is a picture of one of my early wire-wrapped links projects:

For a long time I was thinking of doing something similar (with better workmanship of course) with crystals instead of the carnelian beads and pearls. Not so much the triangular shape, rather the idea of creating "fabric" for the necklace out of wrapped bead links.

Or I could go for something like this:

...only with smaller pearls. I still have a set of filigree cones I could use for the back.

Basically it should be either crystal or pearl, or otherwise something with a "fancy" look to it. Still pondering...
