Lariat – March JAC Challenge
The March Challenge from the Jewelry Artisans Community was to make a Lariat
Dawn challenged us: By popular demand, this month’s challenge is lariats. I’ve never made on, so this will definitely be a challenge for me. Looking forward to seeing your creations.
Well I have made a few before but hardly ever wear them. So this was a fun challenge to make a lariat that would be wearable too.
But first of all, what is it. Well in short, it’s a very long necklace, without a clasp. Which can be worn in many different ways I found this video on you tube which give clear instructions on how you can wear it.
Now lets go to the creations that where entered.
Dawn from Jewelry Art By Dawn said:
Here is my attempt at a lariat necklace. I used mouse tail cord, paper beads, vintage brass beads and a vintage component for the beaded ends to pass through.
Cat from Cat’s Wire was a bit late, only 2 weeks, with her entry.
Actually that wasn’t what I had planned for the challenge, this one came spontaneously on the weekend. The pearls were already on the wire, so all I had to do was to put in a few hours of crocheting
And my entry for this months challenge.
I partly cheated,
I took a ready made long necklace with black plastic beads I had lying around, cut it in half and embellished the ends. What a horror to make photo’s of long necklaces.
I mixed it up this time because there where several photo’s made and I don’t want to choose which photo to place so I share them in this galery below.
