An original

Necklace,  wallpaper, sterling silver, elastic;
Kathleen Faulkner

During the last several months I've been working more with found and recycled materials.  The wallpaper I used for this necklace is something I found at a garage sale several years ago.  I had no use for it at the time and wondered why I was buying it aside from the fact that it was beautiful.  It sat folded up in a corner of my workroom waiting for the day.

In a previous post I mentioned that the original material of paper beads was wallpaper.  
So, why not make an original?
