As I took the pictures for this post, it's uncanny how I seem to be in a mindset of turqoise and teals with everything! I know I am drawn to different colors throughout the year, but right now, you'll see what I'm talking about in the posts below.
I started this necklace with this adorable ceramic house, made by Bo Hulley Ceramics. I have kept many of her ceramic creations in my stash as she only makes a few at a time, and there's lots of time inbetween the firings of her kiln. My first thought for an add-on was the czech glass heart. How perfect is that? And, yes, my heart is totally in my home. From there, I wanted some depth so I painted a brass flower to add underneath (Vintaj paints) and then kept on adding, wire wrapping some farfalle beads with daisy spacers, and this gorgeous glass hanging flower bead from Stars Beads. I cannot remember the artist, but this is a hefty piece of beautiful glass. I wanted to draw the eye to that glass, so added a Vintaj bead cap and some lentils around the edge for some sparkle. The necklace is check glass, some funky stacking bones and brass chain. A very whimsical piece of creation!
Since it proved challenging to take a picture of the beautiful glass flower, I did some unique arranging!!
My next creation began with a beautiful Gaea heart, one of her many incredible resin art pendants, encased in copper. I wire wrapped the southwestern style copper button to the top of her heart and then used czech glass flowers in a beautiful opalesque color with fire polish/chain to finish the necklace. So pretty and easy to wear.
