Number One!! of 52

Here is necklace # 1 of 52 necklaces in 52 weeks.
"Just Be" is my way of remembering to stay in the moment and not to get ahead of myself.

The new techniques for me that I used for this necklace were to use metal stamps ( should give those artists who hand stamp jewelry ALOT of credit. It is not as easy as it looks and you only have one shot) 

and to use paint to stamp the blank. This would not have been something I thought of doing until this project.

I also went for the asymmetrical look which is not usually in my comfort zone. Ya know, with the two beads on one side and none on the other.

These were the supplies I started out with

The findings are by Vintaj.
They have lots of cool findings and after doing this project I would like to try more of their products, although I think they are a bit expensive.

Overall it was a lot of fun to make and I would try these techniques again.

If anyone has any ideas for how to use the metal blanks ruined by metal stamping goofs let me know ;)

Let me know what you think of necklace #1!
