April is Amulet month!

At least it is over at Art Jewelry Elements.

You can check out the original post here.

I was one of the lucky winners.

This sweet little thing came in the mail....

Now, I have to admit....the whole reason I signed up was that I wanted to see one of these amazing amulets up close and personal.

So imagine my delight when I was contacted that I had won.

I was even more delighted when it came.

It is even better than I hoped.

My head began swimming with possibility.

So the first thing I did was to get out my 3 favorite materials to work with: silk strips, polymer beads and waxed linen cord.

And quickly, this came together.

The amulet is predrilled on either side but the cork was not so I tied my waxed linen cord through the holes on each side and this allowed the cork to still fit back on.

I love the colors of the one she sent me....

It goes perfectly with my handmade polymer clay beads...

I just did simple knotting with the cord and silk strips.

I prefer a necklace that is adjustable with the silk cords.

So there you have it....

My amulet reveal.  

I cannot wait to see the rest.
