The lovely Karen at Some Days are Diamonds has started a wonderful blog sorority!!! We all had a challenge to use this image in some way. I FORGOT the take a picture of the item with ourselves part. Since no one of camera operating age is home now, I am sorry it will have to wait!! (My youngest takes great pics of the floor and ceiling!!) Okay I cheated and added a tiny pic of the item to a photo I already had!! (It's not obvious is it??) Tee Hee!
I made a pin using Tim Holtz acrylic pieces, and adding a resin rose which I hand set a vintage rhinestone in, as well as glass beads, and pearls.
The pendant is actually a laminated image that I soldered. I didn't have a glass piece big enough. Then I added glass beads, a broken jewelry piece, rhinestone spacers and a Czech glass bead. I made FOUR pieces. One came out okay. Needless to say, I am new at soldering. I have RUINED a ton of things practicing!!
Now for the SURPRISE part!! I am going to send one of these pieces to Karen and the other to a lucky Sorority sister who participated in todays Blog hop. Just leave a comment saying you want to be in the drawing Sunday Night June 27th.
