Inspired by our January 2012 ROCK N' ROLL theme.
Glad I saved all those House of Blues guitar picks from my concert going days... I thought this bright pink pick was the perfect focal for a fun rocker style necklace. The guitar pick is set in a Deco Window Filigree, so the design is visible from both sides. Accenting the pendant are rectangle Arte Metal blanks embossed with the swirls on our Moonlit Night DecoEmboss Die. I turned the embossed blanks into creative connectors alongside Onyx beads, a large glass pearl and a Swarovski Crystal Rivoli. The necklace strands are complete with Arte Metal Elongated Oval Chain and a black hand-dyed silk ribbon. Pink suede is tied off above the large hook clasp for added texture. A little extra detail hangs above the pendant, a Tiny Artisan Star hand-stamped with 1.5mm letters reading; Rock N' Roll.
