In a major fiber slump …

wire wrapped necklace, agate, niobium wire, silver bead caps

Wow, it’s been a long time. Maybe, it was Christmas. Burn out. It happens. I was churning out projects faster than requested, but now … I’m in a slump.

Nothing is calling my name. Patterns I’ve saved are just, blah. Blah, blah, blah and more blah.

I needed a change. Watercolor, gardening, and now, jewelry. I’ve twisted wire, strung beads, knotted pearls, and tatted necklaces for few decades now, but haven’t touched my tools for about a year.

This weekend I broke them all out. My case of beads, caps, niobium (yummy) wire, and got to work.

Salmon agate is quickly becoming my favorite color. Not quite orange. Not quite pink. Delicious. Paired with some fire agate I’ve been hoarding, these two gemstones churn out one yummy necklace. Who needs dessert?

If you’d like a video tutorial on how to make a similar necklace, let me know in the comments section. If you don’t want to go near a pair of pliers, but would love to have one, let me know that, too. We’ll work something out (winky face).

We all fall into a creative slump now and again. Let’s help each other out.

Until next time,

C. Flamenbaum
