February Design Challenge
Angela aka Beady Eyes has been experimenting with new wire techniques including needle lace. Her romantic and girly Needle Lace Heart is an amazing example of that skill. I think she’s got it!
Caron’s offering is a beautiful heart shaped stone that has yet to be identified. She has embellished the stone heart with wire wrapping and an assortment of tiny beads in complimentary colors. It’s name? Hidden Love of course!
Dawn made asymmetrical hearts out of copper wire and bright red beads. The bold hearts and striking color combination on these earrings and necklace scream Rock Star. For someone that doesn’t like hearts you really rose to the challenge Dawn. Did you paint these red beads?
My entry from The FamiLee Jewels is a collage necklace called Love Forevermore. I am just not a hearts and flowers kind of girl. The necklace charms include a clock hand with a piece of a love letter captured on it with resin, a black crystal, a Forevermore token and a tiny brass envelope containing a letter with the word love etched on it.
Our Island Girl, Lynne made a necklace out of her own red lampwork hearts connected by soldered silver heart links. She challenged herself to solder all those fine wire links and did it!
Thank you to everyone that played along and entered into the spirit of the challenge.
Please consider joining us for March’s Challenge when we all go looking for a pot of gold
