I first made these for my ceiling fan, I loved how they looked and had to make a pair of earring for myself.
Talismans against evil eye. These talismans are ironically called “evil eyes.”
My friend helped me with installing plugins and use wordpress more efficiently. I wanted to make her something as a thanks and since she has a business selling reptiles and goes to reptile conventions I figure making something to help promote that would be great.
Her favorite color is green I wanted to have that on the necklace. I struggled finding the right beads, in the end I thought wood beads and green beads would work, I found out I had some green leaf shape beads which I thought would go well with the theme. I then came across some shiny bronze looking beads in my collection that I added for a little more variety. Since my friend is left handed I made sure the clasp would be on the left side when it was being put on. It is is something small, but I think important to make it easy to quickly put on a necklace.
I actually made this and then cut it up and made it again. The letter beads where terribly out of line on the different strands. Plus the wood beads would sometimes slide over the crimp beads holding them in place. After remaking it the letter beads are correct and I was happy and think my friend was very happy with the necklace.
My first commissioned piece. A rosary necklace. I had to do some research to make it authentic, that way it looks cool and shows some realism.
Rosary beads is quite an interesting subject.
