Purple Delight, Etc.
This blog records my process of creating art jewelry, with adventures, examples, and techniques! Not to mention creative inspiration! Click on the images to enlarge.
I'm working with Lawatha (see link at right), an extremely talented glass artist from the Etsy Glass Guild, to create a piece in celebration of Spring. This amazing purple glass pendant is accented by freshwater pearls and purple crystal rondelles.
It's in process ~ I think I'm adding two more strands of pearls.
Okay, I might call this "Elegance." My girlfriend Andrea picked out the laquered black squares with the painted leaves. I contributed the freshwater pearls in gold and the glass leaf shapes.
I'm asking my Beading Group if I should apply a laquer or polyurethane coating to the surface of each leaf to ensure the paint doesn't flake off. I'll let you know what they say.
