Okay, I'm going to go ahead and admit it...
I was only able to do one of the Margie and Me palettes for this one.
See, I ordered some Tilas that would go perfect with the Constructivism palette, and they never arrived!!!
So, I stuck with creating something for the Madrid palette.
I chose to pair this cute little component link that I bought from Nancy and add a few wire-wrapped links, a little bead embroidery, and some leather.
I'm still debating on how I feel about it. It's a lot different than my norm, but ya' know, sometimes you've just got to go for something. I'll let you know if I intend to keep it that way or not.
I also finished my RAW for the week, and it's a wire-wrapped ring that incorporates a little beadweaving.
I used a little beaded beads and suspended it between two arms of wire.
I also created a second ring. This one is straight out of Jodi Bombardier's book, with the exception that I added the two arms on the side instead of just the one.
The purple ring is not quite as comfortable to wear as the brass one.
But, the thing that I worked the most on this week and that I am really, really proud of is this...
It's a wire wrapped pendant that I created using Jodi Bombardier's techniques.
But, while I used her techniques to create the weave, the chain, and yes, the clasp, the design is all my own.
My inspiration was the peacock. I started out with the pendant facing up, like a peacock's tail, and added the color along the edges and at the top. (Did you think I was gonna leave my little seed beads behind?)
I then wire wrapped the components together and finally created the chain and clasp that finish it off.It's not silver, though it looks it.
It's actually a high quality copper wire with an antique brass coating that has such a great oxidized color.
It's much more cost effective than silver and is great especially when you're just learning! (That would be me.)
I'm actually going to list this beauty in my shop, it's here if you'd like to see more photos.
It's my Birthday!!!!
