AJE August Component of the Month Reveal
|Mine's the one in the middle at the top.|
I mentioned last week that I was fortunate enough to be chosen to participate in this month's Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month. Let me remind you of the beautiful Melismatic Molten Morsel I received from Melissa Meman.
I jumped the gun a little and made my punches in the piece before I remembered to take a picture. Heck, I punched those holes before I had even decided on a design. It worked out though.
I did ponder what I had on hand and could create that would complement Melissa's beautiful work. After much thought, I decided a deep purple would be perfectly royal. In that vein, I used some small beads that I received from a friend. After completing the necklace and in the sunlight, I found that some of the beads are more red than purple. But, I still really like it despite that little snafu.
I really hope I did Melissa's beautiful Morsel the justice it deserves. Follow the links below or head over to the Art Jewelry Elements blog to check out what everyone else did with their Morsel.
