I'm a little late in posting this. My cow water system froze and that had to be fixed first. I am taking part in Sally Russick's "Focusing on life." This week our prompt was make art. Since I do not draw well I decided to let my jewelry be my art. I'm not kidding about the drawing. I drew stick figures even as an adult. Then I became interested in costuming dolls in historical costumes and my drawing skill improved. My husband and sons would just roll their eyes when I asked them to pause the movie so I could draw a picture of a dress. Art was a class that brought down my grade average. The last two weeks have been spent designing with cultured sea glass. Bill Zhang of www.znetshows.com contacted me and asked it I would be interested in designing with their sea glass. I said yes. There are 24 people who were given the glass to design with and they will pick the best to present at the Tucson bead show. The pic above shows what I designed. The necklace on the bottom left is convertible. The center section unclasps and becomes a bracelet. There is another dangle that can hook on to the necklace. I wanted to show that the sea glass was a versatile medium so the first necklace is strung. The second necklace is bead embroidered and has spiral rope straps. The third necklace had brass chain at the back and used as dangles next to the sea glass tusks. For necklace #4 I made links out of wire and a vintage corrugated circle behind the sea glass focal. The final necklace has magnetic copper wire coiled around the sea glass rectangle. I used small copper discs as accents and I made the clasp with seed beads on copper wire. I used one of the sea glass tusks as the toggle. Please wish me luck on getting at least one of my pieces chosen. Thanx Sally I think you are doing a wonderful job of getting all of us to see ourselves better. If you want to see any of the jewelry pics larger just scroll down. They are in the last two posts.
