A sakura motif, with the colors turned all upside-down, makes a cute piece of fabric jewelry!
The brown is a beautiful soft mushroom with blue undertones, so I used pale teal with it. Looks really delicious, but very subdued. The round 'findings' are humble little aluminum washers from DaddyBoy's toolbox. Love how they match perfectly with this piece.
I think I'm gonna take a break after this piece. It involved an insane amount of handstitching to put all the layers together for the flower, and to make the grungy, rough base instead of a smooth one, and then to finish up everything at the back. (The back is six overlapping layers, one for each petal, and then a central round one, and it's all smooth - forgot to take a picture!)
So there you have it - another slip-on fabric necklace with a braided cord.
Sits just a few inches under the collarbone.
Welcome Spring with a cherry blossom!
