My first Year of Jewelry (YOJ) project is a long woven gemstone necklace with aqua blue apatite and smoky quartz beads. I love it!! I have never made anything like it before, but it was relatively quick and easy to do. It did take some planning though. If you're interested in tips on how to make one, see my other blog Lisa Yang Jewelry for more pictures and information. I'll be wearing this for the next few weeks to make sure the design is sound and it will wear 'happily ever after'. There's nothing worse than jewelry that doesn't withstand the stress of every day living.
