Just finished my Ophelia collar. All in all it has taken me 32 hours from the first rough sketch to the finished necklace. The fringe really put me through my paces. Will post better picture in a couple of days.
I am a podiatrist by day and design and make jewelry in my spare time. My favorite medium is bead embroidery. I love the journey of a piece of jewelry - the way a piece starts in my head and then takes shape and often changes when I am working on it.
