AJE Component of the Month - Francesca Watson





This month the Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month was made by Francesca Watson.  Francesca is a very sweet person who makes beautiful jewelry.  This month she made the enameled discs with silver accents for us to use in our creations!  I made a bracelet this time, this is not the first one I made either!  I had something in mind and it wasn't coming out the way it was supposed to, so I put it down.  I let it percolate a little bit and finally the design happened!  I'm using ebony twisted wood beads and three of my own lampwork beads, separated by sweet little silver heishe spacers.  Stop over at AJE to see what everyone else made!

That's beautiful Sue!! You had the same color I did and went a completely different direction, love it!
What a gorgeous bracelet! Very rich looking. I never even considered making a bracelet...

Oh Sue! The enamel with your beads - gorgeous. I like the wood as a more neutral partner - the glass, and colors really sing!

I love this bracelet. Your lampwork beads mimic the color in the disc/pendant perfectly. And I love the darkness of the twisted wood beads. They really make your lampwork and the disc pop.
Oh my gosh! Those lampwork beads are STUNNING!! And I love the ebony twists - makes the pinks really pop. Such a great job!!

This is really pretty Sue, I love those wooden beads and they contrast beautifully with the raspberry tones of your beads and the enamel.

Pretty bracelet, Sue...I love the combo of the wood beads and your lampwork! I had to redo mine too, and am not finished!
Very nice! Love all the beads, and the clasp is awesome, too!

Ooooo, your colors are gorgeous! I love the contrast between the luminous lampies and enamel with the matte, dark wood. Wonderful!

I like how this came together, Sue. Those discs looked like fun to work with!
I love how you have colour-blocked the beads in your design, Sue... I think the wood adds a lot of drama to the bracelet.

Art Elements Theme Challenge - August - Swirls

This month Marsha Neal chose swirls as the theme of the month! I'm enjoying the challenges as themes. I've been giving my wrist a break because of perceived carpal tunnel, so I've been doing a lot in polymer, and by a lot, I mean when I have a few half hours of time! Here are the swirl themed polymer items I made for this month! This first one reminds me of a fiddlehead fern, all closed up. I painted it with alcohol inks. This next one is the before of the ammonite hearts I did. Two of my favorite things, ammonites and hearts! Colored with alcohol inks.  I made two, the colors turned out very different! More spirals in the form of polymer clay ammonite cabochons. I really love mixing the paints to color these! Plus you get a gratuitous flower shot!  More ammonites colored with ranger patina inks and alcohol inks in that order.  My fave, I think - I love the colors! Alcohol inks. This next one was made with acrylic paint and I tried crackle on it, d
