Summer knotted necklace on silk

After a lot of deliberating, playing around with various design ideas and beads, I have finally come up with my afternoon project for my May workshop.
I don't know about you but after the gloom of this years winter I am desperate for some sun and heat and with that in mind I decided that by May we will definitely be gearing ourselves towards a long hot summer, well we can dream any way!
I think that my chosen design for a summer necklace will be perfect to wear with both cotton dresses and summer tops.

I have knotted cats eye chips onto coloured silk, this sample necklace is 16 inches long but attendees of the workshop will be able to make their necklace any length they choose .
I am also hopeful that there will be time to make a pair of matching earrings and possibly a bracelet too
The workshop itself is on May 7th 1,30 - 3,30pm at Lily's Secret Vintage Tearoom, Swan Pit, Gnosall. I will have been hosting a jewellery making workshop there in the morning and I do offer the chance to attend both workshops with lunch.
Please contact me for further information or to book your place!
