Well, I joined Michelle's challenge again. Maybe it's because I suddenly like blue. Or maybe I just can't resist the shiny (I've mentioned my ADOS before). Whatever the reason, I bought the bracelet she dared us to remake. As always, I forgot to take the before picture, so I went back to her site and stole the original pic from her:
I had no real trouble using the crystals but, for some reason, couldn't come up with a way to use the silver spacers so they're tucked into my stash to await the perfect reworked job. Until then, here are my two contributions to the challenge:
|I started with a lanyard (instead of a regular necklace)|
It's titled "Hot Spring" and is for sale in my Etsy store
|I used the yellow dyed agate for Spina Bifida Awareness|
and the cross to remind us to have faith in God's plans for our lives
|Red glass beads, red & yellow millifiore glass rectangles and|
black lampwork with white and purple dots accent the blue
crystal rondelles from Michelle's challenge.
|This one I used gunmetal links and wire as well as yellow|
fritted lampwork beads and green dyed agate that reminded
me of a Japanese painting whose colors ran together.
|Yellow dyed agate finishes the bracelet|
at either end. This piece isn't titled, yet,
but will be in my shop soon also under
the Spina Bifida line.
