Believe it or not, today is the last day of September. I have no idea where this year has gone – I just sent out an e-mail to one of our ministry teams to let them know we need to start planning for Christmas. And then I cried.
Not really. But… Christmas!
So since it’s the end of the month, today is Component of the Month reveal day over at Art Jewelry Elements. For September, the always awesome Lesley Watt provided us with these stunning “bursting seed pods”.
I paired that combo with some pretty golden pearls that complement Lesley’s patina, plus some iridescent Czech glass beads in a gently faceted egg shape. These will be combined to make a tassel underneath the pod element – at the moment, I’m planning to use a mix of chain finishes for variety.
So that’s how my piece is coming together – my apologies to Lesley for being behind the curve on this, but my foot is not cooperating. I’ll update this post as soon as it does!
To see what the other folks make, check out this post at AJE for additional links. Thanks so much, Lesley!
