Aren't they lovely colours? And here is what became of them ...
It is not quite resolved yet - I want to string it with different material and I still need to make a hook clasp for it. Also I am a bit undecided about the overall format because although it is comfy ( leather at the back ensures this), it is a bit weighty so I might remove a few elements. The glass was indeed collected from a beach, the crockery as you know came from the oppie and I cut out and enameled the ring myself. I didn't pluck the stick pearls from an oyster or wherever they come from - they were in my stash! Oh and I forged those sterling links too - not a drop of solder in sight - I melted a couple of rings trying to solder them - I am just not very good soldering! So, I used the part of my brain that continues to behave laterally (despite all that gin) and forged me some links! Unique and rustic would be a nice way of describing them!
And because I thought I might try and keep my hand in using Photoshop I thought I would treat (?) you all to my version of the "Anatomy of the Neckpiece"! (sorry)
The lighting is pretty dodgy but I gradually remembered which tools do what - if you don't use Photoshop often enough it is really easy to forget how to do things 'cos there are soooo many options! This will be an exhibition piece too and I welcome your feedback!
