Silver/Inspire Me Thursday



This is my entry for Inspire Me Thursday's prompt of Silver. It is a piece of Ivory silk, 2 skeins of silver embroidery thread and 2 skeins of black. Now I hope I can find an inspiration as to what to do with it. Sometimes these prompts are so easy and sometimes you really have to think out of the box. Silver is probably very easy for some but for me it's not really because I don't wear jewelry. I wear my wedding ring and my cross necklace and that's it. I used to wear my mom's platinum ring with blue sapphires but one of the sapphires fell out and I figured it was safer to keep it as a memory. For a short while I was into marcasite jewelry but even that became too difficult. Broken chains, lost stones, knots in the chains you name it. Kind of ironic that I can get just about any knot out of thread but when it comes to the chain on a necklace I'm a bit clumsy at it. Can't get them out no matter how hard I try. So I never take my cross necklace off because the chance of it knotting goes down drastically. And my wedding ring is gold.

Ok so I've beaten this dead horse of a prompt till you are probably screaming out no more inane talk about knots in necklaces. So I'll be back tomorrow. And I will put the project that uses the silver and black embroidery thread on my blog when I figure out what to do with it.(Perhaps inspire me thursday will help). Keep stitching.

Thank you for your comments Kimmie and Karen. Yes I did make the christening outfit. I loved to make them but really haven't made one recently. Thanks again for visiting.

Do you crochet? I think it would make a fabulous choker using a pretty pattern! You could even incorporate some silver beads. And there you would have a necklace that you could manage the tangles!
Good luck with your project. :)

I love the photograph. It has the atmosphere of possibility, which is of course, what those skeins represent! Silver and black is a wonderful combination - I'm sure you will create something beautiful!

This is probably not the right project for silver and black, but I would love to see what you would do with an image of the Virgin Mary...
