Just a quick post about a couple of new necklaces I made. I need to make some samples of jewlery with my new beads so I can wear and display them at the Berks Bead Bazaar.
So I couldn't wait another minute to make some jewelry with these trilobite pendants. I will only have a few at the show, and each one is totally unique.
First I made this one for a display piece.....it will be for sale. I LOVED how deep and orange the bronze piece got!!!
It features a trilobite, a spiral connector and a rolled bronze center drilled stick bead- all will be for sale at Berks. It also has stick pearls, an antique brass bell, a genuine ammonite fossil, a connector by Starry Road Studio in a great rusty colo, amber and turquoise.
So, I usually make myself something to wear at the show, and I loved how this first piece turned out so. So I made one for myself- but a bit chunkier, since that is how I roll.
I will probably never take it off. It has a large trilobite, rolled beads, turquoise donuts, labradorite chunk, ammonite fossil, brass bell, more tuquoise, rutilated quartz, a raku bead, agate, and recycled sari silk mixed with a great strand from Marsha Neal Studio.
See, it's totally my style! I love how ancient everything is on them, even though they are new, they feel like they have thousands of years built into them.
Now I am off to finish an article and sand and seal some more beads.
Happy Friday Everyone!!!
