Stone, Glass, Clay, Flowers, Watch Parts and Gears
Bev's necklace & earring set
My wonderful sister, Jody, commissioned me to make two necklace and earring sets using Vintaj brand components and findings. I love the brass metal and the style of these necklaces; an eclectic mix of stone, glass, clay, flowers, watch parts and gears.
Nancy's necklace & earring set
I was walking through Hobby Lobby and found free project sheets using Vintaj products and fell in love. I grabbed each sheet and later found a project booklet put out by the company. Jody wanted something special to give to her sisters-in-law, Bev and Nancy, as Christmas gifts. I was touched she came to me.
Each necklace contains an oblong bead I made using dried flowers from my/our niece, Sarah's, wedding bouquet and cream-colored clay with glitter. There's a round bead with dried pink rose petals from my church and the same clay. For me, the necklaces are a way to connect our families.
