This week the theme is Eastern Spice. If you use your MEGA imagination, I almost got there!
The pearls came from China, the onyx probably did too if the truth be known, and if you sort of imagine really hard - the Hill tribe pendant thingy could be like one of those big gong critters you see in old movies - you know, the old emperors court or something!
The reason I've gone off theme this week is these beads are for a design challenge here in Australia and twit that I am I thought it had to be finished this week , so I went like a cut cat to get it done and then realised I was only a MONTH early!
I had it practically finished (totally different) - decided I hated it , out came the sidecutters, pulled it totally to bits and started again! Meanwhile - A day and a half later!! I thought I'd be a bit clever and kill 2 birds etc. Outsmarted myself.
The pendant is onyx, freshwater pearl and swaros wrapped A LA ENI and then the rest was done on 22ga sterling wire to match.
The bracelet is made to match and the earrings are just fairly simple.
