These necklaces are going to make my summer bright!

I designed them for the spring issue of Perles et cetera.

My original idea for a summer necklace was to create something lightweight and bright. I wanted something unusual to pair with all the neon colours being showcased in the fashion world.

Last year while in Paris, I noted the use of neon in so many different displays and product groupings.  I fell in love with the hot pinks and yellows.  I can’t wait to add some neon to my own wardrobe!

To begin my summer jewelry collection I started by creating some kumihimo braids on my Dazzle-it kumihimo disk.  Hot pink looked fabulous.

I also had a spool of bright Dazzle-it rainbow rat tail.  I thought I would see what a kumihimo braid would look like using this multicolour spool.

I combined it with some gold rattail and created a very unique braid.

Now, I was torn between the rainbow colour braid and the hot pink braid so I made a new decision. Why not make several interchangeable necklaces?

7

Dazzle-it has ten neon Ori crystal colours in its collection.  I chose three two tone colours; pink/white, green/yellow and orange/yellow.

8

I made each necklace interchangeable by adding two clasps to each side of the necklace. I have the option of wearing it with the kumihimo braid showing or the crystals.  I can also interchange all the braids and crystal strands.

If I am feeling daring, I can wear all the necklaces at once!
