I got my piece done for Kristie's monthly component challenge!
(Okay, well, almost done)
She sent us these cute little charms and I created a little pendant out of mine.
I haven't gotten the chain added yet.
The plan is to add two jump rings through the size 8 beads at the top and add some long thin chain (probably gunmetal).
I created the top part of the pendant in brick stitch with faceted czech glass and some aqua to accent the colors in the little charm.
Thanks Kristie for the opportunity to work with such great pieces!
In other news, I definitely feel like I've bitten off more than I can chew!
I signed up for Erin's Challenge of Music blog hop and then I haven't even started bead soupin', and then I did a swap with another artist and I've got a special order looming as I wait for the supplies to get here to make it.
To top it off, I haven't been falling asleep until late and so I've been sleeping later in the morning to compensate (which means morning creative time has been sacrificed) and I've found a couple of good books and I'm really enjoying reading again when I have any extra time, and this week has been more doctor visits than normal....
it's just been busy what can I say?
The weather has been great the past couple of days though, so I can't complain whenever I have to be pulled out of the house.
I hope you'll check out the other artists that Kristie has in her swap.
Visit her blog here to catch all their creations.
Have a great weekend!
