To construct the necklace I used a curved strip (alright – in fact it’s a perfect circle) of black / golden /copper brocade fabric and decorated it with techniques likely to the ones I have already described in other parts of this diary: I made Cinques (which are made like Quadruples, just with one more pearl), gemstones, made jewelry pieces from Fimo and leaf gilded them etc..
The necklace closes on the backside with a hook-eye-combination.


Necklace in the ‘making’ stage, the leaf-gilded Fimo parts already attached, but the Cinques and jewels are still missing


Finished necklace

Now let’s make the name-giving pelican jewel.
