As you can see I created a two level peice to showcase more of her wonderful collection. Each piece, all by itself is nice ,but together the collection creates a SHOW STOPPER!! Karen has barely taken it off since last week and finds that she is able to draw a crowd wherever she goes. Here is a photo of the encklace as it looks while being worn. I am so thrilled that Karen likes it so much and she has requested several of my business cards so she can hand them out to appreciative fans!! Cool!!
Today I created a necklace for myself using my Porcupine Scrap fabric beads. Several friends have asked if I was going to be selling any and I plan to have some available at my Etsy elizajean.Etsy.com site later this week!
To attach the beads to the black ball chain necklace, I added a beaded loop to the top of each bead. this is going to be a very fun peice to wear and will look great on any solid color outfit!
In this picture you can get a bit of an idea of how the beaded loops work.
I am really enjoying putting these little gems together! truely making a silk purse out of a sow's ear!!!
This week, I also sent off my Valentines Gift cone to my friend Patti B. We were to include a few fun art finds as well as something that we had created ourselves, besides the cone. Patti loves birds even more than I, if possible, so I created this little Birdie to keep her company in her art space!
She is about 5 inches big and does best plopped on her bottom tail feathers. She was a hoot to make. I might have to make a few more for my Etsy shop! Her is a picture of her backside so you can see all of her glorious plummage!!
I have sevearl other projects in teh workks so I will be posting again soon!!
