Artisan Clay Design Team Reveal - August
As you may know, Kristie Roeder is hosting a design team! Once a month, she sends us a cool piece she made and we make some jewelry with it! The reveal date is the last Friday of the month. Here is my piece for the month!
She sent me a shard with two loops so I immediately, after thinking on a it for a while, decided that it would be a connector. I made two ribbed round beads out of metallic black glass to match the raku of the shard. I also used some African beads I got from The Bead Chest a while ago as accents. Finally, I ran out to Michaels yesterday to buy 5 kinds of chain - black, gunmetal, brass, copper, and "silver". I really like how all the chain looks together and can see a bracelet just made from layers and layers of this chain! Chain is in, you know!
I hope you like my piece! Please visit Kristie's blog to see everyone else's creations!
