This is the first jewelry challenge and blog hop I have ever hosted. I’m excited about it and pleased to have some super sweet jewelry designers and bloggers join me. My inspiration was this mermaid image of a woman curled up in a seashell. I think it is just gorgeous. I love the softness of the image and love how her hair flows out. I am learning how to do image transfer and I’m working some of the kinks out. So far, my images have not transferred perfectly. Maybe I need to see the small imperfections as part of the charm of this process.
I made the chain out of steel wire. This is my first time making this particular chain and I am in love with it. It takes time to make the little links but it is worth it. At first I was worried about them being very consistent, but now that I see them all together, I don’t think it matters one bit. I love pairing the rustic steel chain with almond tone crystal pearls and black diamond rhinestone rondells. Opposites do attract.
Here’s a bit of the chain up close.
Please take a few moments and visit the other blogs in this blog hop. If you can, be super sweet too and leave a comment!
