I hope you all had a chance to watch the craft hour on The Martha Stewart Show. It was a very exciting day for the TV crafters and especially for Kirsten, who gave birth during the craft show at 10:18—pretty sure she waited for the commercial break! I don't think any of our craft projects can top that!
I did, however, get a great response to the Mesh Ombré Necklace that Martha and I demoed. Jewelry can be difficult to show on live television, so it is the type of craft we don't show that often. We all agreed that jewelry should be part of the craft hour since it is quite popular among crafters. Lucky for two of you fellow blog readers, I finished up my necklace swaps and am offering them up!
The pearl ombré necklace that Martha made using pale gold Wirelace encasing four strands of gradated fresh water pearls in a warm earth-tone palette.
The necklace I demoed was four strands of ombré golden crystals encased in pure brass Wirelace.

If you are not a winner (even though I think you all are), you can make your own necklace following my how-to photos on my blog Lemmemakeit. It is a fairly simple beading project and technique, so you should give it a try!
