This is my second version of Flora necklace designed by Melanie Potter. Please see my first necklace here. Clearly my mind is set in Spring instead of Winter. It took several different iterations of color combinations to get the perfect bright colored flowers for the necklace.
I don’t know why I like this necklace so much. Well, let me rephrase that. I don’t know why I like making this necklace so much. It’s kind of a pain. But the result is so beautiful! The pain comes from the multiple components that must be constructed individually. This time I was able to find a way to help make beading the components together a tad simpler.
Last but not least is the clasp! This magnetic clasp is fantastic. Unfortunately, with my first version the magnetic clasp is a bit too buried in the beads to properly stay clasped for hours at a time.
Oh! And I’m making at least two more. I’m already 10 flowers into another. Wish me luck!
