A Year in the Making, Day 125

I had grandiose plans for my first day back after my holiday break, but I was waylaid. I can't find my spool of chain! It was on the dining room table, in a ziplock bag to keep it from tarnishing. Looked everywhere and I can't find it. I know it's here somewhere, just got moved with all the holiday fun, but it's winning its game of hide-and-seek.

So instead I pulled out my trove of vintage bits and bobs and chain and came up with a couple completely different things. I had the remains of a vintage necklace, with some lovely filigree accents, and some vintage or antique translucent glass disc beads. The brass met up with some strawberry glass, and I had just enough of a piece of chain to turn the glass into a choker necklace.

We're past the winter equinox, so the days are reputedly getting longer, but I still lose the light at an obscenely early hour, so listing will again wait till I can get better shots:

So tomorrow? Housecleaning! The chain will not be allowed to hide!

It will come to you eventually, Victoria, where you hid your chain. LOL of course, you will be looking for something else then. Lovely work.
