Today I get to show off what I made for yet another beautiful Allegory Gallery kit challenge. Which one, you ask? Well, this one:
The colors for this kit are hinted at in the above picture. So, imagine my delight when I opened the mail and saw this:
What a beautiful combination of yellow and blue! There's lapis, vintage lucite, Czech glass, waxed linen, silk--you name it!
I didn't have the chance to make much with those beautiful components... And, in all honesty, I cheated a little and only used the handmade pendant that was included. And I didn't even use yellow--I used gold.
Ah well... artistic license, and all that!
That being said, however, I really like the necklace set that I made:
I really liked the combination of blue and bronze on the pendant, so I echoed those colors in the design.
About the construction: it's a pretty straight-forward design using wire-wrapped links and a pattern based on threes. The earrings are made with the same beads as the necklace... What can I say, I like things that match. :)
So, there you go! That's what I've made so far with this beautiful kit. I hope to make more with the other components at some point--and, if I do, I'll be sure to post about it. I really do like the combination of blue and yellow, so I need to make something that does it justice.
...For now, though, I need to go pack!
Thanks to Andrew and William at Allegory Gallery for putting this kit together, and thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
