|These Ain't Yo Grandma's Pearls|
When I first arrived for the class I had no idea what I was going to make. Outside the door on the sales table as I walked in, I had seen the pendant. I decided I would base my creation around that. The challenge was to not make something that looked like Grandma jewelry. Not so easy when your color palate is gold and a rosy copper...
I also wanted something 'messy'. As we got started my helper warned me that this was a fairly advanced project I'd set myself up with. I was up for it! I told her I'd come back and teach the class for her next week.
I was extremely happy with the way the earrings and necklace turned out. I successfully averted making Grandma jewelry with gold, copper and pearls included. I wore my creations out to dinner after class despite the fact they were way too fancy for my old t-shirt and jeans!
