My Cocoon Necklace and Earrings

Here are a couple of pics of my Cocoon Necklace and Earrings which I made the week before last. It is a "Stef Francis" (I have just looked for a link for her but it doesn't appear to be working today perhaps the page is being updated!) kit which I bought last year when I was on the East Coast of Australia at the "Gold Coast". It had very clear instructions and was fun to do ... I will wear it to the next West Aus Lace Guild meeting at the end of February.
We had a lovely evening last Saturday (Australia Day) the fireworks over Perth city were great but the accompanying music was pretty naff! seems to be getting worse every year!
It was a balmy night and we hid indoors all evening in the air con except when watching the fireworks of course... luckily the mosquito's didn't find me like they usually do though they did find my mate who got bitten on the palm! of her hand and also my Hubby got a bite on the knuckles!!! (I was fidgeting around so that they wouldn't land on me haha!)

What a great set! I was going to make the necklace when I saw it in a mag, but never got around to it.

How pretty! I love the bright colors you used in this cocoon necklace. Also in some of your other posts, there is some kind of shimmery material you use, I really like it. I am new to the idea of embellishing and most of the materials used in fiber arts other than fabric and thread. I need to take a class or something. But it is always fun to browse others blogs to see what they do.
