Vintage Rosary Necklace

Another class at Silver Bella was the Vintage Rosary Necklace class with Kaari Meng of French General. All the pieces to make the necklace were included in the class kit. We jumped right in and started learning all about vintage pearls, twisting wire, making loops, and afixing teensy bits to our new necklaces. It was 3 hours of concentration, but we came out with a stunning necklace and enough knowledge to make us dangerous in a bead store.
The closeup shows all the lovely pieces we had with which to create our piecs.
There was a similar class we did not take-- one to make a bracelet.
See all those tiny pearls? On the inner strand, we had to make little loops after EACH ONE. Very tedious work, but we were so proud at the completion.
