I love these colors together, in fact I like brown with almost all colors. I showed you what I was working on yesterday.... here is the results. I used the cane scraps and a piece of extra clay to make the two pins.... or maybe pendants.
I do have plans for the all the border canes I've been making... I want to try my hand at bangle bracelets... the plan is floating around in my head...
Click on the photos for a closer look.
I made the oval one first... I used wire to secure the beads and the side scroll.
I got my order from Cool Tools, they sucked me in with another sale....or was it free shipping? I can't remember.... I need to have a talk with whoever is in charge.... they have to quit making new texture sheets, I can't resist, I have to have them, my drawer is full, now I have to buy new drawers... I may have to go back to work just to afford my texture sheet habit!
So, I used the new texture sheet with waves and highlighted the raised areas with bronze PearlEx. You can see why I had to have it.... right?
The 2nd is made with the scraps from the first.... I bet you already noticed that. I"m not sure this one is done I may add some wire, I like the way it looks now but a little wire couldn't hurt.
I sanded the sides and backs of both of these but still have to add pin backs or bails.
And I used a couple of my previous "Thing A Day" things to make a necklace. I added faceted amber crystal beads and colored wire with the disk beads for the side chains and completed the necklace with copper chain. I have a mustard yellow top that looks really good with this.
Time for my nap.
Thanks for stopping by.
