This is the day for the December reveal of Art Jewelry Elements' Component of the Month. This month, the component was supplied by super-talented-wonderful-friendly-fun Jenny Davies-Reazor. She sent us all a labyrinth charm to work with.
This one was mine! At first, I was going to make a necklace. I'm necklace challenged, and it seemed like a great idea. But I have been sick for a month...yep, a month. Just starting to stop coughing right now. Ugh. So, I made an ornament. I have been in an ornament-making mood anyways, and I'll show you some I made in a future post (before I take my tree down!). But I really like this one I made. I found some czech faceted rondelles that match really well, and used a large round clear faceted bead on top, and one of my own lampwork beads as a dangle on bottom. I would chance the jump rings connecting the top of the labyrinth, though, if I get a chance. They are too big. For me.
It just so happened that on December 22, our local paper had a photo of a labyrinth in the city that people were walking around. I had no idea we even had any, and the timing was impeccable! So, it turns out, if you go to a website called www.labyrinthlocator.com - you can locate labyrinths around the world, or close to you! Turns out there are 19 within 25 miles of me! I'm not going to tell you all about labyrinths because I'm leaving that to Jenny! I hope you go and visit everyone else today and see what they made!
