Somewhere during the time I spent stewing on my ideas, and creating these pieces Lisa went and set up a whole new blog called A Grateful Artist. Take time when you are done here to stop by her blog for a visit. If you can, check out some of the other talented gals who participated in this challenge too.
Anyway months after receiving the beads I am here to show you what my odd, little mind created with them. Some of the pieces still need some work, but some of them I am quite proud of. Heck as many times as these beads were lost, buried
Here's what I stared with:
Here's what's left:
|Why are long necklaces so hard to photograph?|
|Necklace that's missing something.|
|Dangles from missing piece necklace|
|more detail of missing piece necklace|
|ring & first attempt at crazy wire wrapping|
|not one for those who like to put their hands in their pockets, but so fun|
|the one little man took|
|earrings for the funky girl|
|more earrings, but this time with matching bracelet|
|tiny drop necklace close-up|
|see very petite on 20in chain|
|AHH! I didn't finish wrapping behind the bottom stone.|
Sometimes pictures talk too much!
|This is just bad lighting, but should I let it naturally patina or spray it so it stay's shiny?|
|Inspired by Bones Season 1. I miss that crazy, chunky jewelry.|
|Yes, only the chips were from the kit, but the rest was all in my stash.|
|Here's where that necklace started when I was debating back of the neck options.|
It's funny how things evolve especially when you are given this long to stew on it.
Did I tell you I've had this kit since August?
Ok that was 13 pieces. I didn't even notice I made 13 pieces till I finished this post. Yeah me! And a big hug for Lisa who gave me this challenge. Thanks so much Lisa for the kit, and all the work you put into the blog hop.
So which piece is your favorite?
I'm still deciding.
