Leather and Lace: CC7A January Reveal

Pin It


***If you are looking for the "2014 Grow Your Blog" Party and GIVEAWAY, click on this link... but of course you are also welcome to visit this post***


 


Once upon a time, a lovely Blogging Sister named Alicia kindly invited me, along with five other practitioners of the Beady Arts, to participate in a brand new adventure, which was to be named the Creative Continuum of Seven Artists. We Seven were to exchange mysterious beady gift bags with all the Sisterhood, and meet at an appointed time to share our creations.

This is the appointed time...

And these are the goodies I sent to the Sisterhood:






  





See my inspiration post to read about the early 20th century designs that got me in the mood!

**I previously referenced, at that post, links to information on the Cindy Lietz tutorials, which I used and adapted for my PC (polymer clay) focals, but I feel it bears repeating: the methods for faux burl woodfaux abalone/paua and micro-mosaic are all by Cindy Leitz. Anyone interested in the art of polymer clay, whether beginner or experienced, would be well-served by accessing her paid tutorials, and/or her Youtube channel, where Cindy has 100+ free videos to help PC behave as it should :)** 

For your viewing pleasure, I present two necklaces, Leather and Lace:


Length 20"


A little leather, some glass pearls, touch of silver...



Length 16-24" adjustable with polymer clay barrel beads above pendant



Lacy hollow tube plays peekaboo with PC barrel beads...




And I had wooden beads aplenty to make another set of themed earrings for my ongoing project, 100 pairs 100 days:









These faux abalone studs sneaked in...


And the Tale of the Creative Continuum of Seven Artists shall be continued...
