I don't make very much jewelry anymore, but when I finally do, I love it!!
I made this piece for Altered Arts Magazine. It is a pendant hanging on a piece of my grandmother's vintage lace. She has had these 3 bolts of lace since the 1930's. Grandma passed at the age of 93 a few years ago and I got so many treasures from her!!
I used the lace as the actual necklace part. I think this piece would look awesome as a choker with a bow in the back.
I used a Tim Holtz Memory Frame to start. I used alcohol ink in blue and red on the glass. I added some book paper inside. I like to think that whoever sees it will wonder what it says, is it from a love note? or something that the wearer finds inspiring? Then I added a Tim Holtz Bauble to the bottom, for that final punch.
The result, I think, is beautiful! It is inspiring me to make more jewelry and I promise to show you all when I do!
