First up: the materials. These are the contents of that final muffin cup, the components for my last project:
|A large pendant, some chain, and tiny (2mm) black agate rounds.|
Based on this picture's composition, you can probably
already get an idea of what the final design will be.
...And here is what I made with them!
The earrings were actually made as part of last November's Monthly Challenge, and I've been wanting to make a matching necklace for quite some time. When I came across that pendant, I thought it would be the perfect complement--and it looks like I was right!
The necklace is super-long, and can be worn either as-is, or as a two-wrap choker. The little agate rounds match the center of the pendant and pull the entire design together. Overall, I am very pleased!
So, there you go! A fitting final project for an extensive Monthly Challenge!
I truly hope that you've enjoyed today's reveals... I have worked hard in order to bring them to you. (Honestly--12 posts in one day. You know, I'm pretty sure that's a record for me! ...One that I probably won't try to beat any time soon. I have edited so many pictures these last few days. Heh.)
...But wait, there're more!
You've made it this far in my reveals, so you've unlocked:
I've made so many things this month, that I wanted to share a sneak peak at other things I've been doing:
1. I've been making pieces for the FusionBeads 30 Day Bead Challenge:
|This is not all of them--this is just what fit nicely in this photo.|
For more pictures, check out my Instagram.
I may post more here on my blog, but it definitely won't be today! :)
2. I've been learning how to make chainmaille:
|Yes, that's my wrist--and that's a byzantine bracelet that I made!|
Still working on technique, but I've got the pattern down!
3. And I've been having fun playing around with crystal pendants (similiar to the one I used in last month's Pretty Palettes)... So many design options!:
|From left to right, the pendants are: |
rhodonite, amethyst, red agate, red jasper, and lapis lazuli.
...I may or may not be addicted to making these necklaces now. Heh.
Yeah, I've been super super busy this month. ...I think that I have done justice to both National Craft Month and the 2-year anniversary of my Monthly Challenge, don't you think? Woo!
And now it's time for me to get ready for April! Thanks so much for stopping by today... I hope you enjoyed yourself, and will join me next month to see what other craziness I get myself into!
Happy last day of March, everyone!
