First attempt at realising a necklace that has existed only as a sketch for years. Aquila is a 3 star constellation which contains a star called Altair. This piece of bead embroidery will form the off-centre of the necklace. I think I will try the centre piece again before working on the neckpiece, this first attempt is chunkier that I envisioned. I’ll put a lovely back on this piece and convert it into a brooch.
