Three Graces

In Greek mythology, the Three Graces are feminine representations of charm, beauty and creativity.

Botticelli's version of the Three Graces
In Norse mythology, the Three Graces take the form of the Norns, who tell a person's fate by reading their past, present and future.

Pagans honor the Triple Goddess, or Maiden Mother Crone, celebrating the different phases of a woman's life and the power that comes with each phase.

I love this plaque (but it's a pain to dust!)
 I've wanted to do a necklace inspired by the Three Graces for quite awhile.  Here's what I came up with:

Felting gave me the base that I wanted to show off these faux bone etched pieces, which I paired with resin faces.  I added charms and trinkets, bits of crystal and magatama drops for accents.  I found the perfect strap beads in my stash, using these etched spiral agate beads.  

I feel like I honored the spirit of the Three Graces.  Agree?
