Whimsical Necklace

My quest for smart jewelry designs using my hand painted silk has taken me to fun places!

There are many things I have known since childhood but have never given a second look. A lot of stuff that are just part of Brazilian folk crafts have just always been there, like my grandmother crochet bed spread, and have never really interested me.

It is fun to just look at things with a new eye. And that's what I did with yo-yos (or what in Brazil we call "fuxico" - spell fuh-shee-coo.) They are all made with silk I painted, and I finalized with a brass chain and clasp.

I think it would look great with a "boyfriend" white shirt and jeans, don't you?
