Antique Map pendant
Most of these necklaces and earrings were completed last week except for the chains. I stuck with a theme of long pendant and earrings until the last one, which I did sideways - and I like it. I wore one set on Friday and got a few comments at work - but when I stopped at a department store all the sales people commented on the pendant and earrings.
This pattern is from a quilt that I made.
Art Deco image
Black and White paper, backed with silver paint. Two sets of earrings one with a larger pattern and one with the smaller pattern.
Random image that I had in a pile of papers - but I like the black and white.
No earrings with this one - it's a triple layer collage.
I've also been playing with bowls this weekend, as I am still stuck at home with a cough. (DH went out bike riding today and I stayed home - that'll tell you that I really don't feel good!)
Anyway - paper mache musical bowl, painted with pinks - and of course gold inside. I made this cord on the top from twirled tissue paper, fancy ribbon, and gold thread. This one is a big size - about 10 inches across the top and about 6 inches high. I think it's too pink in this picture and has more depth in real life.
The next three are tiny bowls/cylinders made from the leftover paper I had from the bowls I was working on. They are all three about 4 inches high and 2 inches across. The first one is painted and stained and wiped, and restained - in person it looks antique - like something you'd find at an archaeology dig.
This one is tissue paper and musical paper and it glows if you put a tea light in it. Plus it's the perfect size for a tealight.
This one is tealight size also - and it really glows when lit from inside. Pretty one I think.
I have three more downstairs waiting for final touches.
A friend nearby is hoping to have a yard sale in May and she asked if I would sell some artwork. YES - I nearly yelled. Everything is also going on Etsy, and then if I'm still invited - there is the YART in October.
