I was so excited to get a kit from Andrew Thornton's September Bead Challenge ~
I just happened to catch it early on Facebook! Here is the kit I received plus some mystery beads. I loved the colors right away...
I really loved the mystery component of a copper metal clay flower impression
that had been highlighted with gilders paste and dichroic bead ~
I thought it would be perfect with my rustic patina on the large round disc and my purple patina with mica on the large brass flower disc ~
The sweet enameled flowers were a perfect fit with the lavender "grow" connector...the necklace clasp is a new design available.....
A few added shell beads, gemstones and lots of matt silver rings and I am really happy with my finished piece ~
I wore it right away!
Thank you Andrew!
