The crystal necklace

Another necklace that we made at our weekend away was this lovely necklace. Our hostess, Margaret, gave each of us an antique chandelier crystal as a gift and with that we were able to produce this necklace. It is a bit hard to see but there is a black and white image on the back of the crystal which has undergone a few techniques to get it to that stage. The building, with the smoke coming from the chimney,
was where we held our classes over the weekend.
And this was the front view, it would have been easy to daydream
out of the window if only we weren't being kept on task all the time!
Finally - happy birthday to my second brother. Here he is using my plaits as a moustache. He has his own moustache now and I don't have any plaits....that's life!!
