For a couple of months I have been working on a victorian jet necklace, collecting vintange and antique beads, looking for period descriptions and actually making it.
If finally deciced to make this:
It is a bead necklace from De Bazar (A Dutch Magazine for Ladies), 15th of February
Making a necklace seemed pretty easy to me, but was much harder than expected. Especially as the description then weren't as detailed as they are now. I guess a Victorian Lady knew how to make one of those things. Also the right tools, thread etc are much harder to find than back then. Never the less I am quite pleased with the end result, eventhough I know with more practice it probably would have turned out much better.
