Lovely in lavender

So just a quick post this morning, before I have to run around like a loon and get ready for work…
Here’s a necklace that I made and I’m excited it’ll be getting its first outing today!

I have called this one Violette. As inspired initially by Vilette, the Charlotte Bronte novel (at least, I think that one was by Charlotte – it’s so long since I read it!)
But I thought that Violette was better than Vilette and suited the lovely colour.

I rescued the beads from a broken necklace that I scored at a vintage sale. I love them – there’s a gorgeous sort of swirly, marble colouration about them. I think the plastic may even be Bakelite. Who knows…
They look so yummy after I cleaned them up and gave them a new lease of life!

Yum! 😉

Must dash now, enjoy whatever you get up to today folks, R x
