SMOKE IN MY EYES




Just as I finally feel like I'm getting in to the groove of making more jewelry and ATC's(will post those later) , it will be time to go back to work in another 30 hours or so! I can really get used to this slow pace. It has been a very relaxing few days, and I've really enjoyed it! I finally sat down and created a piece that I've been pondering for a while, with this gorgeous pendant from Melissa of ChinookDesigns! I don't like how these photos don't really show the purplish hue of the pendant, and that was a REAL challenge for me to work with, but I came up with this and was pretty happy with the overall color combo and design. This, my friends, is a very unorthodox color combo for me, but I'm glad I did it, and now my narrow mind is a little more open. It's really growing on me. I call it "Smoke". The pendant reminded me of the swirls created by smoke floating in the air...and the color is kind of like it also. And, I used to smoke. I smoked for 18 years, and quit 15 years ago....best thing I EVER did, BUT, let me tell you, I used to LOVE to do it! But that's another whole story! Anyway, I'm still smoke free, except for the necklace!!!

What a beautiful combination, Sharon. I noticed the continuation of the smoke swirl theme in your copper spirals...as if the smoke is rising up. That last picture is especially flattering. Must feel great to have made such a wonderful piece over your "staycation"!
