I saw a painted shell at the craft store, in greyscale. This is basically what I actually saw in the shell when I first looked at it--and found out after I bought it that it was supposed to be a parrot. ...I wanted it to be a very stylized peacock, and so here we are. A real shell painted with vibrant red, green and copper iridescent pigment mixed into high gloss varnish for a super-shiny effect.

As for the necklace itself, it's a semi-shiny strand of yarn mixed with a "fuzzy" strand, both crocheted together. Soft and comfy and stretchy, and adjustable.

A Kiss for Luck

A Kiss for Luck

It's said that Lady Luck is remarkably fickle. One moment she's smiling at you with her hand resting on your shoulder, and the next she's pushing you away in disgust. It's not known exactly how one goes about getting Lady Luck to look one's way, but maybe something devastatingly sparkly is the way to her fickle heart.

The color combination of red, black and copper was suggested to me recently, and while I can't blame the suggester, I hope he won't mind me thanking him a little bit. *grin* I'd actually set out to make a simple necklace. Again. I failed so hard at that. 51 Swarovski crystals, a few seed beads, and the typically insane urge to make little tiny links out of thin copper wire. Yeah, that's all me. All mine. I'm going to take a couple of days off now, thank you.
