The first one was a little easier since I was still working with the orange linen color from the two previous necklaces. It came together quickly as I strung rectangle duct tape pieces to some brown embroidery floss. I cut fringes into each piece. When I put it on, I was able to see that it lacked shape:
My problem was solved by trimming down the larger sections at the center of the necklace.
It started out like this:
It felt incomplete, so I kept adding to it. I gave it wood grain printed tape pieces, but it still looked wrong. It looked over designed. There was too much going on!
Eventually I got it right.
Which brings me to tomorrow and my duct tape goals for the weekend: flowers. I'll be making flowers for BEA, lots and lots of duct tape beauties to display in a duct tape vase. Wish me luck!
