I was looking through my pictures to see if there was anything I had missed sharing with you.
I realized I did not share these.
I gave you a taste of them when I shared the post for over dying silk strips.
Today I wanted to show you all of them.
Lynne Simon Suprock is an amazing artist.
You can find her blog here: Simply Pretty Stuff.
Her original pieces first appeared in an issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry.
I made my own after I tracked down the right size tubing.
Because my shotgun shells were not brass, the etching did not work the way I wanted.
I do like the patina I got on mine.
I love filling each little reliquary.
That is half the fun.
I also like determining what the rest of the necklace will be like....
Old hardware, crystals, silk strips, polymer beads, patinaed chain....
It is all good.
I gave a makeover to cheap mall jewelry chains with mad scientist patinas.
Because I do them myself, each has a whole different look.
I even stamped some of the vials with StazOn black ink.
Sometimes when I revisit something I made, it gives me an itch to make some more.
I am definitely feeling itchy...
Hope you have been working on something that inspires you too.
