What goes in to Making an Entirely Handmade Necklace.
An entirely handmade necklace takes a lot of time!
I really enjoy designing and creating precious metal and stone jewelry.
The first step in making an entirely handmade necklace is to have some inspiration. What do you want to make? I get inspired by historical pieces, by other jewelry makers, by nature, and just out of the blue something comes to me.
I write down my thoughts on the metal I want to use, the gauge of metal to use, what stones/pearls/crystals, the length, the link type, the pendant, and the clasp type.
I'll draw my informal pictures showing me what and how I want to build this necklace to look like what I envisioned.

Plagiarism is a crime.
I am honored to have your interest in my writings & photos. But to steal one's work is a crime and is disrespectful. Use your inspiration to create your own works with your own experiences and your own words.
