|Chaine Maille necklace|
Well here it is the necklace to go with the bracelet. Quite a bit easier to make than the bracelet. I even made the stand so that I could photograph it. (I was about to throw out a cardboard box, and had a flash of inspiration, and remembered I had some black adhesive felt in my craft crocs stash!
For a first attempt at anything like this - I confess I am a bit chuffed and it will look lovely with my new black GOK dress! The only thing I found was that it wasn't really long enough for my neck - so just added a few more links at the back. Just need to create some earrings now to complete the ensemble - something simple with the pearls I think. I also might add a sort of pearl charm to the bracelet.
ps and I can report that my ankle is much better this evening. There was an almighty crack as I put my foot to the floor earlier, and suddenly I could walk on it. We think I must have dislocated something, and have manged to "relocate" it! Still a bit swollen, and stiff because of that, and looks like a bit of bruising coming out now, but I am so pleased to be able to stand on it.
