there has been a new jewelry tutorial that I have been wanting to try
joanna pierotti is a fabulous artist and she had a tutorial available
on her blog moss hill studio in december
since i love using old photographs this tutorial was right up my alley
it is a technique used on glass to make it look like vintage mercury glass
when i found this sweet girl image on pinterest
i knew that i wanted to incorporate her into something
when i finished the main pendant
i felt that the rest of the necklace should do it justice
that is when i hauled out all of the "good stuff"
you know, the stuff that collects and gets saved for that special something
i used a lot of "good stuff"
cut steel beads
vintage sterling silver beads
i didn't hold back with this one
i am pleased with how it turned out
the red tones of the garnets and the gray/blue tones of the pearls
really enhance the necklace
i just need to make a funky hook and eye closure for the back
and then she will be finished
i don't know if i am going to be able to let her go....
