Today's post will be on these choker victorian( some refer to it as gothic, but not as in the whole "Goth" culture thing, as in Gothic style churches, etc, I prefer that kind of Gothic and Victorian, Edwardian might also be a good name for it lol) necklaces I have made. I only did three of these since they are time consuming even though I did manage to do two in one week, I was on a roll that time lol! They are really relaxing and though time consuming, pretty easy!
This is actually the first of it's kind that I did, it has over 500 beads, the gold ones are real freshwater gold dyed rice grain shaped pearls that I bought at firemountaingems.com I think they were about two bucks for the strand, it was on sale. The lovely darker beads I got at a super sale at save a thon, I think it was 3 bags for a dollar, 5 bags for 2 bucks, that was more than enough for this necklace, you'll see what I mean :)
I used the same darker beads in this necklace, I found this one easier to make, had it done in about 2 hours, time flies when you're having fun! I normally multitask too while making crafts, eg: Talking to the hubby, just relaxing in his prescence, or listening to those good old radio tv shows like Baby Snooks.
This is another necklace I did of its kind also last year, this one was a lot quicker. Its purple and blue, I also got those beads for that same sale. The Kyanite beads and the bigger class beads at the bottom are from ebay and michaels. This one is more Rococo/ Baroque, soft colors lol
My next post will probably be later on today, I want to work on some Mothers day cards and get a lot of other stuff done lol! They will be on the cameo necklaces that I usually wear and everyone at Church and around the city love! Take Care God Bless!
