Echo Creative Club March Reveal

Hello :-)
Today is the reveal of the March Echo Creative Club.

Echo Creative Club

Do you remember this post? That post is where I revealed the focal I was sent for this challenge.

Green. Yikes!

Vintaj Natural Brass Clasp

I had that focal lying on my bead table for a while and then all of a sudden it came to me, layer.
So I layered it over the filigree, added the beaded chain and the toggle.
Then I added a 3 bead drop.
I wore the necklace and those beads bothered me. 

Me: What do you need necklace?
Necklace: A tassel!
Me: A tassel?
Necklace: Yup, a tassle.
Me: I have never made a tassel before.

Can't be that hard *shrug*

Yes that big 'ole gin blossom needed a tassel. 
So I made my own.
Here is my necklace with fire polished glass, Czech glass, Vintaj and my very own handmade tassel :-)

This necklace is looong and was hard to photograph and these next 2 are when I was playing with new props, epic fail. Don't laugh. Oh and yes I do realize the first 2 beads are different colors, no I didn't realize that till I was writing this post. Yes I will be fixing that asap! Don't laugh those beads look almost identical.

But anyway I hope you like it and I hope you will check out what everyone else made.

Thank you again Jeannie for a wonderful challenge. I didn't even know I could create something with that color green but I love it!

A talking necklace?!?!?! I love it! =) You were right to listen ... the tassle looks great! Ignore your symetrical sensibilities, though, and leave that darker bead in ... it looks great as is!

Beautiful necklace, Shannon. Love the layering and the tassel and the way your necklace can talk. Super!!

The tassel is outstanding. You did a wonderful job. I would have never known it was your first. The layered pendant really brings this necklace together..and I like the beads just way way they are. Thank you for creating such beauty.

Hi Shannon,
Your necklace is so beautiful and the tassel was the right touch. I did not notice the beads being different colors until you pointed it out.

Kristen said...

Shannon, this piece is awesome! I love your tassel! What comes to mind is "shake what your mama made!" And you my dear made an awesome dangly tassel!

Maryanne said...

I love the necklace! The tassel (I'm partial to all tassels!) is the perfect touch. And, I love teh layering idea. I didn't notice the difference in the bead color until you mentioned.

This is a fantastic necklace and it is also fun to seei in how many different ways those pendants can be used :)

Michelle W said...

It's beautiful! I think the necklace was right, it needed the tassel! I love the focal bead layered over the filagree piece. Just beautiful!

TesoriTrovati said...

Oh good. Your beads talk to you too. That makes me feel better! Love the tassel! And love the long length! I am really into long these days. (And truthfully, I still can't tell that those beads are different colors!). Enjoy the day.

Courtney said...

That needs to be around my neck right now! I love it. I love how you put the gin blossom on the filigree flower and added the tassel. I am a sucker for tassels and this is perfection!!!

I love you piece.

Cindy Cima said...

The layering of the pendant was a great idea - the entire necklace came together beautifully - I love it!
And I love the tassels!!!

Shannon - you are an inspiration to me! Every month you have come up with such amazing and original designs, and this month's is no exception. I absolutely love the combination of colors and textures you used to showcase Jeannie's Gin Blossom focal. The Vintaj and glass work beautifully together, and the tassel is the perfect finishing touch. Just gorgeous! :)
