Had every intention of playing with fold formed metal again, and got out everything I needed to start, but then I thought I heard a very feint . .
g r e e r . . . . . oH . . . . G r E E r . . . .
It seemed to be coming from somewhere amongst my boxes of beads and I thought naaaaaaaaaah, must be the wind. Then, a little louder
g r e e r . . . . . oH . . . . G r E E r o P e N t h E bOx ...
and I knew what it was!
Ahh the little owl pendant I made to celebrate the getting of solar power few weeks ago.
Change of plans.
The back of the pendant was I felt unfinished so filled it with polymer clay with a texture of wings. Think it looks much better.
Next, got out a selection of beads and components.
Made a link from some of the round aqua glass pearls and one with the red, but the beads were too big and overpowered the link. So pulled them apart and remade them with smaller ones and decided to go with the red pearls as they really popped against the dark brass.
I patinaed the moon and tried various ways of using it, then had a lightbulb moment. Turned the moon on its back and punched 2 more holes and attached the pendant.
After a few false starts and a few more undo's here is the finished necklace.
So what have your beads been whispering to you?
