A change from my usual blog posts about rings! I don’t get to make many necklaces these days – I guess because I have such limited time at my bench at the moment and rings are popular so they tend to dominate. But oh my, was this necklace worth stepping away from the rings for!
This necklace is largely made up of 3mm recycled sterling silver cubes, with a few 4mm and the odd 5mm thrown in as well. Each cube was individually cut, filed, sanded, drilled and finished before being threaded onto sterling silver wire. It took a while but once I got into the swing of it I got pretty speedy…though I had made over half before I figured out a quicker way to make each cube!
