I am going to share a bit of Too Much Information here for a second. After my morning coffee and web surfing, I skipped the shower and went to the studio. This necklace happened before it was even light out this morning. I find I am most motivated in the early morning hours. But come 3pm, forget it. I can barely get through the afternoon. Actually, this necklace started out as a bracelet and then I grabbed that pretty ceramic pendant from Every Heart Crafts and it transformed into a necklace. Very asymmetrical with very complimentary colors of orange and green.
What I love most about it is the butterflies. Remember I told you in my Pork Chop Show post over at ABS that I bought some of these cool wood butterflies? I brought them into work one day and drilled my own holes into the upper wing corners of each one. I have been itching to put them into something and I am quite happy that this worked out the way I had it in my head.
In other news I found out who my partner is in Lori Anderson's Bead Swap party! Maria Grimes of Garden Path Beads! I sent out my bead package to her this morning. I can't wait to see what she sends me! Be sure to keep up on the bead swap, we'll all be showing off our jewelry made with the beads we get, on February 10th!
