And it’s time for another Component of the Month with Art Elements. This month we had a guest contributor – Kristie Roeder of Artisan Clay. Even though I didn’t get chosen to use one of the components she gave away, I had one in my stash that I had recently reclaimed from an unsold necklace, so I decided to play along!
As usual, I did not take a photo of the piece before I used it. But really, did you expect me to?
I really enjoy the zen I get from bead weaving, so I decided that’s what I was going to do with this ceramic ring. However, the hole in the middle presented a dilemma to me. I had seen Jennifer Cameron made a piece and filled in the hole with a perfectly sized czech bead; however, I didn’t have any. I did, however, have this lucite flower bead, and I used a small czech flower in the middle, and a size 15 cobalt bead to hold it all in place!
I have these awesome black necklace blanks so I decided to make the loops to simply string on one of them. I have to get better at my loops – not sure what happened to those skills, they must have left my brain!
Please check out what everyone else made with their Kristie Roeder creations!
