Recently, I have had a few adventures in jewelry making. This crown was created this weekend at a class taught by artist Donna Goss. It was my first major piece with lots of soldering. I wouldn't say I am a professional solderer yet, but I did learn a lot! Not to mention all the fun I had hangin' with the ladies from Texas!
I made this necklace in a class taught by Joni Russell from Mrs. O'Leary's. She was inspired by a class she took at Art and Soul by Jean Vanbroderode. We used a lenticular image so that when you look at the picture one way you see a seemingly normal looking gentlemen, then in another look you see a ghastly ghoul! I had fun choosing the image, then creating the perfect tombstone shape and adding all the charming accessories.
I created this necklace just for fun this summer. I had been wanting to create some necklaces made out of different kinds of chains, charms, and a few beads. I like the idea of an asymmetrical look, also. I have tons more supplies... better get to work creating a few more!
