Costume Jewelry Squee!

I promised myself that I wouldn't go all out for FiranCON this year, as I spent way too much money last year on costuming supplies (making feather masks was expensive!), however that promise didn't last too long. In the end I decided since I got a raise at work that I could afford a new costume so I'd gone with rogersmycat to get fabric and other supplies in order to make one. I'll be dressed as Taleena for the LARP, who is one of my characters. That was several weeks ago and the costume is completed.

The one picture I've seen of the sewing and beads and stuff from the costume inspired me. I decided when I was at AC Moore two weeks ago that I'd go ahead and get some beads and supplies for making jewelry. I really wanted something that would be inexpensive and thematic to wear. What I managed to find, after much searching, were some nice white pearl colored beads and some tiny long golden beads with a nice pattern on them. I decided to put them together to match my costume, which has white and gold mixed in.

The combination worked very well! This is the result: http://www.cuendillar.org/lisa/talneck.jpg

It's kinda small, but it's meant to be that way and wearing it today to work makes me realize just how much I love this necklace. It fits very well and sits just right, below the neckline. Squee! Very happy. This will definitely be an after CON piece of jewelry that I use.
