I FINALLY have gotten the opportunity to get back into beading and jewelry design. For my birthday, my hubby treated me to a beading supply shopping spree and I was able to pick up some of the components I needed to make some necklaces. I also started working with resin to make my own mixed media pendants. Here’s what I came up with:
This pendant features a line from T.S. Eliot’s poem, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” I added an antique spoon handle as a drop. I like that the drop and the pendant sort of suggest a coffee spoon.
I made this as a Christmas gift for my Aunt Kathy. If you aren’t my Aunt Kathy and want to take a peek, feel free to click on the link. If you ARE my Aunt Kathy, we are on the honor system here and I am counting on you to not peek until Christmas.
This necklace is a blending of all my creative hobbies. I took a macro shot of the cabled stitch on a sock I knitted and then took the photo and made this necklace. The photography could be better (little sharper, better exposure in the top corner) but I am happy to see that the basic premise works and I am planning on doing a whole series of macro pendants with different knitting stitches in different yarns and colors.
I really enjoyed making jewelry again and I have a ton of ideas that I am looking forward to playing with in the near future.
