I also got the opportunity to work with different materials, including a great polymer focal and clasp made by my swap partner Beth Emery. And finally, I had my first opportunity to take a concept and design jewelry around that idea.
Beth, I "hope" I've done justice to your beautiful polymer focal and clasp.
Beth also included pearls, crystals and some red coral beads that she said reminded her of cardinals hopping around in the snow. With that in mind, I put together a bracelet that represents snow (pearls), ice (crystals), and cardinals (coral). I dubbed this piece Snow and Ice.
|Snow and Ice|
I hope you'll take a few minutes to visit the other blogs that participated in this swap. Comments are always welcome.
