(What is this, you ask? Simply put, it's the challenge that I've come up with to keep myself on my creative toes. For a more full explanation, go here.)
So, for March, here are the components that I challenged myself with...
|Fordite pendant, Swarovski bicones, and silver-plated findings.|
...And this is what I made!
|Oh, look... Also a Fordite pendant, Swarovski bicones, and silver-plated findings!|
...Truth be told, I'm rather surprised that I used everything that I laid out for myself. My original design didn't involve using the chain, but the Swarovski links by themselves were a bit too dainty for the size/weight of the pendant. Also, they almost seemed a bit too, well, blingy for the more industrial-turned-art pendant.
So, yay, chain!
I absolutely love the way this necklace feels and looks while being worn... Just the right mix of sparkle and color, and solid without being overbearing.
All in all, I consider this challenge to be a success! The necklace turned out nicely--and now it's something I can actually wear, as opposed to the separate pieces languishing in my bead storage.
And, it felt nice to have a challenge. In fact, it was fun. I'm already excited about my upcoming April challenge, so you'll just have to see what I come up with!
So, there we go... Thanks so much, everyone, for stopping by and joining me on this silly little adventure! I enjoyed working on it, and I enjoyed sharing it.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
