METAL LOVE




I had a wonderfully productive weekend and made a few things I'll post throughout the week, this being one of them. It's my version of the Wrapped Bead's Necklace in Mary Hett's book that I've been jumping around through and submitting some projects on Deryn Mentock's blog challenge. I have to say this was my favorite so far, but each time I complete one I say that to myself, so this has been a terrific way to practice and to learn some new techniques!!

Doreen said...

This is so cute, Sharon! Are the projects in the book pretty easy to do or are they difficult? I've been eying this book for a while now.

Nice work Sharon! I love it!

Kristin said...

Gorgeous! I second Doreen's question. I haven't bought the book yet because I thought the projects would be hard. What's your take?

Thank you so much everyone! Doreen and Kristen, I don't think the projects are hard, but definetly a challenge, that is to me. If you haven't worked with sheet metal, you may find it difficult, it really depends on what you're expecting. I don't think they are easy, but you can make it as hard or as easy as you like! I really like to push myself to do something that is hard!

Very cool, I really like the beads you chose to put with you pod, and love the crystals.

Deryn Mentock said...

Very pretty, Sharon! I love the crystals. This piece is so feminine but still with that lovely, rustic pod...beautiful!
