So, this is one of three pieces that seemed to get me over my weird little hurdle. I'm doing a large custom bridal order (5 bridesmaids, a best lady, two moms, two flower girls, and the bride). This is the first of the bridesmaids' pendants, which will all be a little different.
|Black Labradorite (also known as Larvikite) and Czech Fire Polished Glass.
Her colors are pewter gray and dark apple red (cool, huh?) I wanted to use a few different pendant shapes, and took a spin to the next town to a bead shop to see what they had. Nada. But they did have some awesome moukaite roundels with lots of mauve and pink in them (which I had been casually looking for here and there), so I picked up a strand of those and ended up making this:
|Moukaite roundels with baby garnets and brass leaf medallion from Ghana.
I had these little pearls and beadcaps sitting around for awhile, wanted to make earrings. This is them, all grown up:
Got these little millefiori eggs over the summer at a bead sale, not really my style but I like the way they turned out with these funky little ruffled flower beadcaps and antiqued earwires:
I made a bracelet too but I don't like it so I'm not going to show you. Probably cut it up and redo it.
I started on this other thing, but it's not quite right. Once I decide on this one element it'll go together pretty fast and I'll show it to you. Maybe by the end of the week.
That's all I got. Time to go hang with my Squeeze. Peace out.
