Stephanie of Beadsoffolly.etsy.com sent these great photos of one of her recent projects using one of my raku geranium leaves as a focal point. Now, try to tell me this does not scream Spring Is Here...lets go frolic in the Woods:)...though today in my home town the temps have fallen back into the 50's in the daytime.
I was puzzling how she got the holes in such a slender edge with out breaking the leaf...look how clever she worked out adding all the colorful dangles. I think it is such an exciting creation!
She describes her creation...
"This beautiful wood nymph necklace high-lights a lovely Raku leaf made by a fellow etsian at " wondrous strange!"
The tassel from the top of the loop measures 4" and is hung on an olive green ribbon with an extender chain that measures 18". I used a variety of gemstone beads, glass, porcelain, lucite and seed beads. Each bead is woven within the design on 10 nylon cords keeping them all secure, and flowing.
Makes a lovely sound when you move about, fun to fiddle with as well! Very striking on contrasting colors!"
Click on the title above and go right to her shop for a look around...many treasures to be had in this great shop!!
