This is the second necklace that I salvaged from my attempt to make "Sally Jean Alexander's Love Bird Necklace". As I described in my previous post, the end result sadly ended up in the junk pile.
I could not get the solder "beads" that are around the piece to be a consistent size, even though I learned how to make them in Sally Jean's Soldering for Virgins class. I'm sure it will come in time but to solve the problem, I snipped individual balls from a sterling-plated ball-chain and soldered them on. That certainly takes a steady hand! The necklace is also reversible:
Dangling from the heart is a blue bead from a Peyote Bird watch that I wore until it died beyond repair. A stainless steel chain closes with a sterling silver toggle clasp that I bought many years ago at a trunk show at a local bead shop. I am thrilled with how this turned out!
