My Bohemian Behemoth

Macrame neckace by Sherri Stokey with elephant pendant from Staci Louise Originals.

At the risk of being redundant, I'm sharing a post here from the Love My Art Jewelry blog 
in case some of you didn't see it (I hope many of you are following that blog, too - it's full of inspiration for jewelry makers).  I started with a polymer clay pendant from Staci Louise Originals and pulled my color palette from the elephant.  It turned out to be a very colorful, eclectic palette!

I got stuck just a bit when the colors in my knot work seemed to be a bit too blue for the pendant.

Once I got the idea of putting some ceramic beads in between the macrame strap and the elephant pendant, though, things started to get back on track.

And all's well that ends well.

The necklace has a sort of exotic, bohemian vibe with mix of patterns and colors, don't you think.  I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!!


I'd love to hear from you!
