Combining  rustic textures, with vintage style and design creates something unexpected. This necklace has been an idea in my head for some time and a work in progress for a long time. Some times you just can't rush things. The lace coverings were drawn out on graph paper, photocopied and then transferred onto clay. They were then draped onto the distressed stone shapes, cut out with an x-acto knife and then baked. The last step was to trim out the design using a magnifying glass lamp to painstakingly perfect the detail. This is a very simplified version of the process, with lots of steps before beginning the lace coverings. It was very challenging and well worth the learning experience.
