It's a part of who I am...

Creating heirloom pieces at present - leaving my footprint behind, and perhaps a little something extra for my loved ones in the future

My Gothic Valentine.

"Romanti-Goth" has a nice sound to it, don't you think? That dark Victorian/Gothic Vintage look appeals to me very much, and so, I created a necklace some time ago which represents a "darker", "dangerous" more seductive Valentine's Day.

To create something similar, work on "gun-metal" curb chain. Create three beaded cluster groups in whatever colour palette you choose - as long as you include black. The focal bead is a black stone heart surrounded by purple, lavender, and peach shades in varying colour shades and sizes. Add interesting findings into your piece. Add extra "spice" to your necklace with a chain extension that dangles off of your clasp a couple of inches and finish off with a co-ordinating glass bead. Enjoy!
