Cameo Framed Necklaces

I’m a bit late in sharing these necklaces with you…but hopefully, you’ll like seeing them anyway.  And if you do, the detailed instructions can be found here.

I made these two necklaces showcasing a few gems and beads.

This light heart came from Ann Marie (months ago she sent me a box full of beads and I’ve been enjoying using them ever since).

And this pretty blue gem (amazonite) is a favorite because it is often considered a lucky hope stone.

I made the following two necklaces to showcase simple symbols.  Both the cameo and circle pieces come in the same set, which you can purchase through Stampington here (6 pieces for under $6.00).

The “W” stands for William, which stands for my Bill.  Wearing his initial always makes me happy…that school girl kinda happy.

And “3” is for my family, which makes me very happy too.

You can also expand a bit by putting some special words on the cameo like I did here.

From this photo can you see how the sun was shining so brightly outside.  Longer hours with more of the sun’s soothing light and warmth are on the way, and just in time to brighten everything up.  Are you as excited as I am about this?!

    Really beautiful pieces Becky.I’m especially attracted to the white one with the clear heart in the center. I love that you still get school girl happy when thinking of your Bill.
    You don’t know how excited I am for longer daylight hours and the coming of warmer weather. The Springtime birds are arriving, and even those that are here all year long are singing their Spring songs 🙂
    I hope you are doing well and feeling more at peace with each passing day from the loss of your father. Love and light to you.

    Playful pieces. Get to play today, love it when the days get longer, and warmer. The sun shines and the birds sing. Spring. The tapping of the trees has started, mmmm maple syrup.

  6. Lovely necklaces. Knowing the story behind the pieces really means so much more. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts…

  7. I agree with Sherry… I love knowing the story behind your creations too! I was immediately drawn to the ‘w’ necklace as it makes me think of my family… that is the beauty of art though isn’t it?
