I'm loving this jewelry stuff! It's creative and much faster than sewing. I like instant rewards.
I bought some pendants that I like, raided my bead stash and dug up some ribbons I bought for another project I never started. I so want to do more! I actually have another piece in progress right now, I'm thinking of keeping that one though!
I love the messiness of the Tree of Hope. I used a lot of green and this one is sort of symbolic of Lyme disease for me. I wrote a post on Lymeaide a while back that was also published in Public Health Alert. In it I compared Lyme to a tree. Read the post- http://bit.ly/a7oqmn
The other two necklaces are much simpler in their design. I think that the style of pendants is called lampwork??? I still have a lot to learn about this jewelry stuff!
Lucky for me I am still in Santa Cruz where my friend Keri Aragon of String Bean Studios lives. She knows all about jewelry making. If you haven't entered the give away to win a pair of Keri's earrings, what are you waiting for??? Here's the link, go enter now!!! http://bit.ly/bXK2n2
