I’ve been commissioned to create a necklace using all vintage pieces. Though I have walked away for a while, from my art and creating to sell, I did accept this challenge. I call it a challenge because, I’ve enjoyed not having the pressure on me to make and sell.
I explained to the woman who hired me, that I was taking time away from my craft and it might be awhile. She was okay with that.
I was however, motivated to go shopping for the pieces that I would need to make the necklace. My friend and I made several trips to local junk shops and the Goodwill to find just the right pieces.
The hunt is most of the fun for me.
Sometimes, it is hard to walk away from all the shiny bling.
I’ve been caught in the web which vintage rhinestone jewelry can cast.
I’m part raven, or magpie. I love shiny sparkly things.
Here are a few photos of SOME of the pieces I purchased.
I may have gone overboard.
I’ve played around with several different designs, but nothing has come to me just yet. I have to allow the process to speak to me.
I look up from the table where I have been photographing the sparkle.
I get lost in another world of shiny sparkly – wings.
Have a good weekend.
See you later, Bye.
