It starts with the chain…
I was Michael’s looking for something that was out of the norm for me to make jewelry. I usually don’t use gold, filled plated or otherwise. I don’t make it a habit. Normally, I avoid it like the plague. It’s just personal preference mostly. I’ve never been a gold person.
This was the first finding that caught my eye on my journey to make antiqued gold pieces. It is all gold plated, of course. I can’t afford real gold materials to make jewelry. It’s just too expensive.
Here is another style that I have been working with recently, flowers. I don’t normally like beads with flowers unless they are cloisonne, but the millefiori beads just caught my eye. I bought them in blue, green, and, of course, black.
This piece was made and priced Sun, Aug. 7, 2011. I was working at the gas station. It got a lot of attention.
