Another month has passed (my popular refrain) and it’s time for another Art Jewelry Elements Design Challenge Reveal! This month, Linda Landig provided us with brand spankin’ new ceramics that she just started making! How exciting – she’s really doing great things! I chose this leaf pendant, and as usual, didn’t take a photo before I started working with it!
I consider what I made as a work in progress because, in theory, I like my idea, but in practice, it didn’t turn out the way I wanted. My idea was to use the waxed linen and wrap pearls in drops from knots as you can see. It’s much harder, at least for me, than I thought. It’s very hard to get the drops to be the same on both sides of the pendant. It was hard for me to work with the jump ring on the pendant as well. I think the key is to do the pendant first, and work out. I was working from the loop down, for the clasp.
Here’s a photo of what I made, I’m not happy with it at all. If anyone has some pointers, or knows a you tube video I can watch, I’d love the suggestions!
Check out what everyone else made! Thanks Linda for a gorgeous pendant!
