AJE Component of the Month - Melissa Meman

Today is the day for the Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month Reveal!  This month, the lovely and talented Melissa Meman provided us with amazing pendants that she made; we had a choice of pendants, AND whether we wanted them with holes punched already or not.  I chose not, because I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do. 


This is the pendant I chose.  When I received it, I knew what I wanted to do and punched the holes myself! 

I had some discs already made from Bead Fest, and knew I wanted to make the pendant using those.  I also knew I wanted it to be a long necklace that had dangles as well!


I used Indonesian glass beads I already had and "titanium hematite" beads I picked up from Bead Fest to make the dangles.


As you'll notice, it's not quite finished!  I did not have any olive green Indonesian glass in my stash, so had to order it!  It's on it's way, hopefully soon, so I can finish the necklace.

When I do finish it, I'll post a photo so you can see.  I really like this necklace and thanks so much to Melissa for providing the Component of the Month this time!  Please visit Art Jewelry Elements blog today to see what our other members and guest designers did with their pieces - I'm sure they are all amazing!

Those are gorgeous colours to pair with the Morsel, Sue... your design is beautiful and really plays up Melissa's component (so jealous of your photo skills, too!)

Such pretty colors Miss Sue! I love those flat saucer beads. And forgive me, but I thought those were earrings dangling. I hope you bought enough extra beads to make matching ones as they are super. Enjoy the day. Erin

It seems you and I received similar morsels and even punched them similar. However, your bright colors and simplicity of design end the similarities. And, it works out wonderfully! I can't wait to see it when it's all said and done. You always have such great vision.

This simple colorway and design lets the component really shine. I adore disc beads - and I applaud your restraint in waiting to finish until you have just the right bead! I couldn't do it....impatient girl that I am.....:-)

Kristen said...

Sue your design is simple looking but oh so elegant!!!!

I like the color triad. Have you found the right bead yet to complete the dangles? Sorry I was soooo late.
