See those amazing links aren’t they to die for! And now the finished pieces. In my stash I had these scarab inspired brass findings. So here is it a necklace using the chips at the bottom and then to finish it off I had an antique mahjong tile and I put a scary on that. Then I used some brass connectors and I split a brass connector and made matching earrings with a couple of chips.
Then probably my very favorite spices it the ingredients were these two tiny ceramic house beads. And they came with a fabulous ribbon with varied blues and pinks. I knew I wanted to use them on one piece.
So I took the ribbon and some large link silver chain I had and combined them. I made some matching lamp work beads with some enamel on them to go with the house colors and texture. Then I added some Chinovski beads to sparkle and then the necklace I finished off with the bigger of the two houses and finally an antique key (for the house). I also did a matching bracelet and then earrings. I will wear them this week to a conference in Banff – can’t wait I have just the outfit for them.
Lastly I did a sweet pair of earrings with some of the brass leaves Monique sent and I combined them with some of the pearls my neighbor brought me back from south east asia. I have worn them already and love them.
I have a few pieces left but they will have to wait. Thanks again Monique for all the inspiring ingredients. It was a wonderful partnership!!!
