Earthenwood Design Team- Resin Key edition


I just love being part of this design team because Melanie always sends such a variety of goodies. This month she sent the team one of her new resined keys from her new shop, EarthenOxide
It is so pretty in person, the resin has a shimmering blue glow- the image is of a tree, and there is a small leaf resined in on the shaft of the key.
I knew right away that I wanted to do something really feminine- the color is gorgeous. So, luckily I had just ordered and received a few of these large Swarovski crystal rounds from Fusion Beads. and I found some faceted opal pink rondelles that Andrew Thornton sent me long ago, along with a SUPER COOL Mokume Gane round from Pam Wynn, Heather Wynn Millican's Momma.
Dug out some chain and a Arte Metal butterfly from Vintaj Brass. The clasp, just above the Pam Wynn round, is a Tierra Cast button and I created a button toggle by beading a silver seed beaded loop.
It all came to gether quite fast, and I love the outcome. It's funky, asymmetrical and modernly feminine.
