I love making jewelry from silverware. The patterns that can be found absolutely amaze me. The end results when incorporated into jewelry is always stunning. I try to find the name of the pattern of each piece I use and when it was first came into existence. Some times it takes me days to identify the pattern - some times I fail.
Leona is created from the silverware pattern called 'Ambassador which came out in 1919! I added a gorgeous deep blue crystal cabochon to match the blue in the pandora-like beads in the strap.
A double strand of leather is filled with all kinds of pandora-like beads in blues and silver-plate and sparklies. There's a house and teapot, a cat face and shell beads, and a 70's type dangle to finish it off.
Leona is easy to put on. Just slide the leather loop over the hook on the silverware and then tighten the slider!
Leona is a gorgeous bracelet that fits wrist size 6½" - 7" .
