Spool Necklaces

I've been working on replenishing my jewelry inventory for my final show of the year on December 1st and 2nd.  So far, so good, and I think I'm finally ready to go.  My stash of vintage wooden thread spools was still sitting on my desk staring at me, so I decided to make up another batch of spool necklaces since I haven't had any in my inventory for well over a year.

A fluted cake mold holds my supply of vintage wooden thread spools.  It was getting a little crowded in there, so I grabbed a few naked spools and started decorating them.

I love you still

I cut out the words from a few pages of sheet music and applied them with Mod Podge.  This was the first time I tried glitter Mod Podge, and I like the way it adds a bit of sparkle to the necklace.
