Staying with my desire to create for fall, I started with this amazing pendant and ceramic crow by Kylie Parry and worked in some wooden beads I picked up from Pudgy Beads a while back. I mixed both Vintaj Arte Metal and Bronze and topped it off with a piece of hand dyed ribbon. It's very earthy - a different style for me, but I like it.
I went back to my favorite hobby re-use of vintage materials and used this broken antique pin I have had in my stash for a while. Vintage glass beads in gold and green compliment the enamel of the pin turned pendant and I added some new hand blown glass beads from Blue Seraphim. I don't know if I can part with this one. I LOVE these vintage colors.
And, I had to start playing around with a Halloween take on my bird cage earrings. This time with crows and skulls. This style of earrings is always difficult to photograph, but I can't keep them in stock when people see them in person.
And, finally a pendant I made. I'm not sure how I'm going to incorporate it into a necklace yet. I have some dupioni silk ribbon that night be nice, or I may just simply put it on a chain. The orange flowers are lampwork by Serena Smith, the yellow glass leaves are vintage and the butterfly is a brass piece I painted.
It was a good day for creating. It is rare that I have the leisure of several hours strung together to make things. I feel very spoiled when I get this opportunity.
