Projects don't always go the way I envision, actually almost never!!!

I had turned three pieces of found driftwood into cabochons, expecting they would become part of Ripple Effect, but I changed my mind.

And then I made the herringbone chain for New Stitch = New Ideas, and I just knew the technique could give a really organic look with the right bead choices.

So when you put those two ideas together, what do you end up with?

"Adrift" - both a necklace and bracelet.

The largest "cabochon" received a bit more embellishment and became a large focal pendant, the smallest became part of the clasp.

And the medium size was just right for the bracelet, functioning both as a clasp and a focal point.

I'm happy with them - they express a sense of water or sky and definitely represent how ideas can drift and change with the current of new perspective!

What do you think?


  1. These are beautiful! As is your workmanship!!
