You know me. I can't resist a challenge especially when it is all about jewelry. So when Shawna of JBS Arts asked for designers to work with her ceramics, I raised my hand to volunteer. I might have jumped around a bit to so I could make sure I caught her attention.
Now par for the course, I forgot to take any before pictures but I can tell you that I received a ceramic focal,some complimentary beads and sari silk. They were in muted colors which tend to be my favorite even though they don't scream summer,
This is a longer necklace using Shawna's beads, some shell heishi, some vintage Czech glass along with some brass chain. The sari silk I used as part of the focal is some that was also sent with the beads.
I wanted to give everyone a closer look at this focal. It really reminds me of a seed pod in the middle of a flower.
I made this necklace to be adjustable so it can be worn with a variety of necklines so it has a fun lobster clasp as well as a dangley.
There were a few of us that signed up to create with the beautiful ceramics from JSB Arts and I am really looking to seeing what they were sent as well as the designs they came up with. So be sure to grab a cuppa tea and check them out.
