Many times, like writer's block, we have trouble starting a design. I know I had many times stuck behind a half finished jewelry.
On the road of developing my own style, I looked at many designs on Etsy, and saw many beautiful perfect pieces of jewelry which I was not able to create on my own.
I deployed a different method to learn. I found that fashion jewelries that I can find online, have bones but not the complete style. I started to look for pieces I can make with the stash I have, and make my own version of the beautiful piece. Remember that as you make your own versions of inspirations, you can build your own style.
Yesterday, I saw in a Nordstrom fashion jewelry departmentthis beautiful cabochon octagonal necklace.
I absolutely fell in love with this necklace, but finding similar cabochons will be difficult, and I just got new beads delivered so I made my own version of this necklace which is below.
To make this necklace, bracelet and earrings, I suspect 45 pieces of these beads would do the job.
If you make a piece similar, I would love to see a picture! Please share with me.
