Rebecca Watkins simplifies our Wednesday and reminds us that it’s still possible to create colorful, cheery, fashionable art by stringing big round polymer balls on a cable.
Artybecca’s beads are colored with dots of shared colors and textured with circles. A dark wash of paint brings out the lines.
The colors are “coincidental” (as she explains on her blog) and happen to match everything in her closet. She wears them here.
Nothing forced or fussy about this necklace. No laborious techniques. A smooth finish and a nice polish and they’re good to go.
Take a deep breath, lighten up on the expectations, and have some fun. See more of Rebecca on Facebook and Flickr. You may enjoy reading about how she “blew up” a perfectly good cane to get back to the big patterns she prefers.
The only downside was that the cable latch was not great on that particular choker and at one point all the beads tumbled into my lap! The beads have an Ultralight core so they are relatively light but test your cable choker to make sure the latch won’t give out at an inopportune moment.
