|Jubilee Necklace by Molly Schaller|
This month's palette was out of my normal color range. It uses reds and pinks and a golden cream.
|Sarah Hearts blog created this great color palette; learn more here: http://sarahhearts.com/2013-02-06/red-pink-beige/|
Another great thing about Jubilee is that you can make her for under $25, and you'll have beads and chain left over, too--enough to make a bracelet or two or even a second necklace.
If you're having a hard time making a necklace like this work, where the beads nestle between one another in a fringe effect, you might have to adjust the length of your connecting eye pins. For example, notice the eye pins that are bare between the first "level" of beads. I used the width of my chain-nose pliers to measure out that space before I bent them at a 90-degree angle to make the second loop. This allows the beads to hang freely and creates visual space between the larger beads.
