March Honey Do List Reveal
The Honey Do List is a challenge hosted by Sarajo of SJ Designs Jewelry. Basically, Sarajo's husband, Eric, gives her one of his photos each month from which to draw inspiration. It started as a challenge for her, but Sarajo now shares it with the rest of us. And, I love it!
The moment I saw this month's inspiration photo, I knew where I wanted to start.
Isn't this door from Prague amazing!?
It had me chomping at the bit to run a piece of old tin through an embossing machine, color it, and add layers of filigree. And, that's just what I did!
Oh, y'all! I'm so in love with this piece! It had its ups and downs though. I even recorded my process for creating this fun altered and riveted pendant so you could take that roller-coaster ride with me.
To accent this amazing pendant, I selected just a few beads in a mix of metals (like the filigree) and added a length of gunmetal-colored chain.
Yeah, I'm pretty smitten with it.
I especially love the matte and worn feeling of the red on the tin. I had to mix that color myself using Vintaj Patinas. It looks like SJ did the same for a few of her pieces as well, though we used different colors to add to the garnet. The video shows you just what I did.
Making this beauty was a welcome distraction. I hope you're staying safe and secure behind your own doors right now!
Now, head over to SJ Designs Jewelry to see all the beauties she made along with the links for those who were also inspired by Eric's photo.
