A Long Way to Spring

by: Rochelle Kilmer

Whoooa - it's been coooold this week. The poor old thermometer on the deck is in a bit of a state. The mercury has shrunk all the way down to it's toes and disappeared. I don't think it ever expected to have to report on numbers this low!

We can't bring spring - but we can dream - dream of warm days and green things. Green things like this lovely set, earrings and necklace. You'd be all ready for Saint Patrick's Day. If only it would hurry up and get here.

The centre pendant bead hangs from a headpin, so make that first. String it to the centre of a short piece of beading cable, and string the attendant beads either side. Attach to jumprings and crimp off. Then use the jumprings to attach the chain. This version is designed to slip on and off over your head, but you could add a clasp if you want to wear it shorter.

Then - just whip up the earrings to match!
