Embroidered necklace

This necklace I made to wear on a wedding. I worked like crazy, got it done in the nick of time and never wore it to the wedding! Because it really didn't work with the dress. But I still like the necklace very much, these are my favourite colors: purples, blues, greys, silvers with touches of green.
I used Delica's (11/0 and 15/0), Swarovski's, true cuts and seed beads. Bead embroidery on Lacy's stiff stuff and herringbone stitch. Backed with ultrasuede. It hangs niceley around the neck and works for women with (a lot of) cleavage because of the V-line.
I am really curious about what you think of this necklace since this is completely my own design. February is still blank by the way....

BJP10: January

The bracelet for January of BJP10 is ready. It is about darkness, feeling blue, the shimmer of snow.
When it was finished I worked like a madman on a necklace for a wedding (which in the end I didn't wear!). It turned out nicely and I will soon have a picture to show you.
Now I am thinking about February.....

I'm in.

Last night I decided to actually do the BJP 2010. What kept me behind is the fact that I still haven't finished my BJP08/09 and that there are a lot of changes coming up in this year. And I didn't have inspiration. But the muse came by just in time. She kept me awake last night and I decided what I want to try. I want to make embroidered bracelets. Because I think they will be smaller than my CD-shaped pages of last year. And because I like using what I made. So now I am off to decide on the exact shape. I already picked my January colors!
