This beautiful necklace makes me laugh. A lot. Mostly because it will forever remind me of my zany little sister, who I often refer to as Sport. To be honest, I can’t quite remember how that nickname came about, but for whatever reason, it’s stuck. Sport and I have been living in the same city for the past two years, and I love how much we get to hang out. I’ve had so much fun going on urban adventures with her, and will be so very sad when she graduates from college and takes off on her next adventure.
Sport came to my apartment one day to binge study for finals, and was frantically trying to comb through a terribly confusing and boring article. To stay focused, she asked if she could read it out loud while I worked on some projects. And apparently, it served as some pretty great (and completely unexpected!!) inspiration.
This necklace was one of the pieces I made, and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I think the color composition is my favorite part. The pale pink tone of the Botswana agate, and the iridescent aquamarine beads give this necklace a delicate, airy feel. And I love how this piece can easily be worn with a formal or casual outfit, making something as simple as a tank top and sweater feel a little more fancy.
In hindsight, it’s funny to think about where inspiration can come from sometimes. Who knew a stressful read-aloud could result in something so pretty?
P.S. Sport has a good blog going that’s chock full of thoughtful words. Check it out at http://whenyoucomebackdown.weebly.com/
