Our lovely components this month are from Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio, LLC. We had our choice of stoneware snowflakes. I chose a white one.
As per my usual modus operandi, I waited until the very last minute, then some family dynamics prohibited me from completely finishing mine. The chain needs to be secured, it needs LOS and a tumble, and I may completely redo the clasp.
Along with Diana's sweet focal, I included a cute blue bird by Caroline Dewison of BlueberriBeads, a white lampwork bead from Mermaid Glass, one of my own copper metal clay components (it started out as a flower, but I filed it into sort of a snowflake shape!) a Czech glass flower, and some cool brushed-finish copper beads from my stash.
I really like the monochromatic effect of all the winter white, with the one pop of color Caroline's sweet bird adds.
I may add some more beads and completely change the design...stay tuned! But first, go see what others have created! Thanks for stopping by...
