I am trying to make a necklace for the South East Art Society “Remembrance” exhibition.  I can picture it in my head, and draw it on paper, but the actual piece is causing me a bit of trouble.

It is going to have 100 of my handmade glass poppy flower beads on it, as a commemoration of 100 years since the start of World War 1.

I can’t tell you how many times I have pulled this necklace apart!  I think I am on iteration number 10.  It’s nearly right, but it has been tricky getting all 100 beads onto the necklace.

The exhibition at the Riddoch Art Gallery opens Friday October 31 at 6.00pm.
