Lori Anderson of Pretty Things is at it again...and this time she's put together a HUGE blog hop...but has broken it down into three more manageable reveal dates. I was selected to reveal today with the first group! :) As I mentioned yesterday, Jennifer is a fabulous artisan. She works in glass, ceramic and more!!! I loooved the pieces she sent me:
I worked with her raku pendant, her enameled domed circular clasp, enameled bail and some of the jewel amethyst for this piece. I also added my own touch by redoing her focal with some copper work of my own. I added a few of my enameled beads and then the necklace literally fell into place. I of course had to make a sweet little pair of earrings to go with this necklace so I decided to use more of my own metalwork and enameled beads!! I am thrilled with this set. :)
Here's a close up of the reworked focal...
And the cutie pie earrings...
I was going to make more pieces because I am thinking I have about 20 pieces worth of components here but I decided to keep it simple since you have hundreds of other blogs to get to today!!! LOL I will continue to share what I make with the rest of the pieces through out the next weeks/months!!
