Well, I was finally able to get my necklace finished...
(I had an unexpected pick-up for our business today)
I started off by alcohol inking the back of the box with Espresso AI.
Then I set about turning it into a necklace. I used an eye pin threaded through the hold I poked in the top, I twisted a loop into the top and used it to hang from my necklace.... This is the second design I made and ended up using. I wanted to have a string of little gears on each side but it just wouldn't lay right. I had one side that kept wanting to twist and twist. It would have been o.k. if both sides did it but it just ended up driving me crazy.
Sooooo, I took it all off and started off fresh. I used the two larger gears that I attached to the chain.
I need to come up with something else to put on the front...
a word, phrase, embellishment?!?!?
I just think it looks so unfinished.
I'd love your suggestions!
Next week be sure to stop in, I'm going to be trying my hand at a new (to me) technique that I've been seeing quite a bit ~ it's where you create a collage, paint it black then shimmer it up. I don't know that it has a name but I saw it first from Mark Perry - The Male Crafter.
Like I said, I don't think this particular style has a name but I think it should be Aurora or Northern Lights. It reminds me of the Northern Lights dancing in the sky.
Anyway, I'll take you along as I try my hand at one of these gems!
Hope to see you then!!
