Sport and Jewellery

Is it possible for jewellery and sport to come together elegantly.  YES.  On Saturday 2nd Oct 2010 Melbourne found itself in the grip of AFL Grand Final Fever (again...).  Whilst Jane and I do not directly barrack for either Collingwood or St Kilda we have close family members who wanted to be decked out in black and white.  Inspired by their commitment to their team and because I adore black, white and red, I turned my attention to jewellery during the game.  YES...there were eyes rolling (sounds of disbelief that I would allow my eyes to wander from the honoured screen) as I toiled to create this necklace.  I am experimenting with a merger of the butterfly and the clove themes.

I have some sensational red silky wool that I am going to incorporate into the next necklace for obvious reasons.  Maybe Jane and I will try and do an AFL range of jewellery to bring a bit of stylish girl power to this sport....
