100 Day Challenge: Day 50. Basic black onyx necklace with silver.

Happy birthday to me!  I can’t believe I’m already at the halfway point of the Challenge.  For those who haven’t gone back through all the posts to the beginning, here’s what I’m up to: the 100 Day Challenge is a personal goal I set, to make a new item each day for 100 days.  I will photograph and blog about each piece, and I can only use items that I already have in my stash.  This will accomplish a few things:  1) get me ready for my upcoming spring shows, the MAC Fair and Ravenswing; 2) go through my stash and use up beads that I’ve been hoarding for “just that perfect design”; and 3) help clear some room in my crafting space, and help me get the mess under control.

To use up my remaining onyx coins, I chose to make another necklace but in a different design.  This one uses black onyx rounds as well, filling out most of the necklace in black and turning the silver into an accent colour.  There is a small amount of silver filled chain at the back, as well as a lobster clasp.

As much as I like to wear black, I don’t often make a lot of jewellery just using basic black. I decided to root through my onyx drawer (my gemstones are in a large organizer with lots of little drawers, the kind you use for nuts and bolts, but prettier.) and found these lovely little faceted coin-shaped beads. I went super simple with this design, which feels very elegant and minimalist to me. My goal with this strand is to use them all up, so look forward to some more onyx over the next day or two!
