Anyway, on to the creations, which is what you are really here for.
I call this piece Fly Free
I used the leaf pendant Valerie sent along with the temporarily strung strand of beads she sent. I loved the color combination so much, that I restrung it just as is. My sister Kim and I made the collage and I glued it to the leaf pendant. The 9 represents my favorite and lucky number, and the word Free was added to represent my new found freedom after divorce. Added a little wire worked drop to the end for interest.
The next piece I made is called Beaches and Cream
I absolutely loved this Golem pendant Valerie sent, the colors are so peaceful and serene. I loved the beachy colors on the cream background (hence the name) and I added bone heishi beads making a chain using them and jump rings. Then I wire worked drops onto the chain, wove the ribbon Valerie sent through the antique brass chain sewing the ends. I loved the clasp so much, I put it nearer the front so it could be seen. I also added a Vintaj hummingbird to the pendant to tie it all together.
