It wasn't until the beginning of this month that I saw the inspiration photo from Sarajo and Eric for the September Honey Do List on the SJ Designs Jewelry blog. And, when I saw this beauty of a photo, I knew I had to make something. It has so much of what I love: layers of moss, old wood, rusty bits (if you look close), and metal. Take a look!
|Inspiration for September Honey Do List|
It took a day or two to gather my thoughts as I kept the image open in my browser. I finally gathered a few beads, a piece of tin, and a couple of charms. I set to work punching out tin circles to make bead caps and distressing large wooden beads for a more aged look. Alas, that design just didn't work. But, the elements I had assembled stayed on my desk for a day or so until inspiration struck again and the black metal hinge with the rusty washers in the photo caught my eye.
It took me another day or so to realize that I just needed wood beads to complete the necklace.
Fabulous interpretation, especially the necklace - I think it's unsurpassable by any other interpretation!ReplyDelete
A great interpretation of the hinge and the nuts. I would have never thought of it!ReplyDelete
Divya, Thank you! The rusty bits on the washers got stuck in my head once I saw them. And, I had to take a stab at using some of my own rusty pieces. I really appreciate you taking a look!Delete
I'm way behind in blog reading, but this is fantastic! I love your interpretation.ReplyDelete
Ann, I'm so flipping far behind too. Most days, just getting my own blog posts up is hard. So, no worries at all. Thank you for your kind words. I just HAD to get that bit of rust in there when I saw it peeking at me on the hinge. Thank you for stopping by. I know how busy we all are!Delete
