So, my last post was my December 2014 AJE Component of the Month piece, featuring a sweet white snowflake by Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio, LLC!
If you remember, I got behind and didn't finish it. I wasn't really happy with the layout and the clasp either. This is the before shot...
Since then, I have done a little renovation and am really happy with the end result!
Here is the after..."blue bird on a snowy day".
I changed the juxtaposition of the copper snowflake to be above the blue bird, added a couple more copper beads, some winter flowers and leaves with curly tendrils.
I swapped out the original clasp for one the is a bit smaller and with a little more interest.
Of course, the LOS to add an antiqued patina makes the whites pop (just like a few of you said it would)!
Thanks for encouraging me to finish it! I will be listing it at Melismatic Art Jewelry hopefully today!
