The Year of Jewelry ~ Week 4 ~ and are my fingers tired☺
I can't even tell you how happy I am with this one☺
With the exception of the 2 small pink beads
(which are 'reconstructed turquoise')
everything about this necklace is handmade☺
I made some "organic" links using steel wire and enameled them
along with some iron beads.
I added a couple of ceramic beads by an
"unknown to me" artist here in AK that I got at a bead show,
and two JulsBeads.
All of the wire wraps and links are made with annealed steel wire
and I seriously believe my fingertips are actually swollen.
This turned out even better than what I had in my head!
It is totally different than what I am usually inclined to make
and even with the dark wire work, I think it still looks bright and cheerful!
|Think maybe this Year of Jewelry Project might be doing me some good|
