You might remember my post a few weeks ago about Michelle Mach’s Mostly Metal Challenge. And, you might remember, that today is the day we share our creations with all of you!!!
Participants purchased a kit consisting of materials provided by B’sue Boutiques. I chose the Antique Brass Romantic Kit, pictured below.
Here is my completed design. I’ve decided to call this piece “Unchain My Heart.” The name refers to the fact that the necklace comes apart, and the metal portion may be worn as a charm bracelet. My inspiration for this piece comes from a couple of places. First, I have a great fondness for Sarah Coventry jewelry. One of the great selling features of the jewelry was the versatility. Pieces could be connected, disconnected and/or combined to make totally new pieces. Secondly, I have spent much of the past 6 months learning from one of the best – Brenda Sue Lansdowne, who just happens to be the person behind B’sue Boutiques. Brenda has discussed making convertible pieces several times, and I think it’s a great idea!
Here is the bracelet part on its own.
Please take a look at the slideshow at the end of this post for additional views.
Please take a few minutes to look at all of the particpant’s entries. Here are links to all of them.
