Even though I'm working on a project, I just had to squeeze this one in for me! I had this necklace in mind for a long time....just really needed the right combination of pieces to fall into place. Using the technique that Deryn Mentock shared in her article of the Spring 09 issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine, I created the Marie pendant using a collage image and a chandelier crystal. I really love this technique, and the quirky, ethereal, distortion that comes from it. Combined with the lovely baroque pearls, vintage pearls, a vintage bone flower, tiny aquamarine briolettes, and that luscious Objects and Elements sari silk, I think Marie is lookin pretty regal. For some reason I just love her!!! (Oh no, another new obsession!) I think I love her in blue!! Click on the photos for a closer look.
BTW, thank you to everyone who left such kind comments on my first publication, and I FINALLY received my copy today , so hooray!! Some of you requested that I scan the pieces....I will try to tomorrow, but no promises on that working, remember, computer challenged here!! If it doesn't work I'll post new photos of them. But thank you all for your kindness, and I am very excited about it!!
