Home for Reading Week

I made the ultimate mistake of not bringing any jewellery making materials home with me over reading week, and I'm going a little crazy without it! I should, however, be doing schoolwork so maybe it's a good thing.
I am also using it as an opportunity to try out some different artistic mediums - I bought some Fimo, and I'm going to try and make chess pieces. There may be some experimenting with the Cranium clay first.

I just finished making this necklace - I really like it, but I'm not really sure what style it is. I think it's closest to Art Deco, because it's made up of circles and isn't too ornate. Doing the circles wasn't as difficult as I thought it might be, either - same principle as any of the flower pendants that I've done. I'm definitely interested in experimenting a little bit more with different combinations of shapes ... we'll see how it goes!
