Well, welcome to my little piece of the internet for the lovely Miss Erin’s Simple Truth’s Celebration! Let’s start with what’s right about this necklace, namely Miss Erin’s sweet little owl pendant – love him! Love his colors and sweet little face. I won him in a giveaway at The Art Bead Scene. For a week and a half I’ve had him sitting on my dining room table adding and taking away ingredients as I would stop and look at it. Firstly, I hate my bead storage system – approximately 25-30 of the multiple divider boxes. It just doesn’t work. Anyhoo, I knew I wanted him to dangle from the Vintaj branch. I also wanted to keep the necklace more on the delicate side, a little more romantic.
Tinsel Trading Company last fall in my spur-of-the-moment 3 hour NYC whirlwind (my only time to NYC) with Gabrielle. That part is fine, though I think I’m going to remove the upper and lower crystals and I’m okay with the brass oval link chain. So, overall I like this side of the necklace.
The Art of Closure e-course that I recently took from the very talented Deryn Mentock. Check back late Sunday or Monday to see the revamped necklace. All of the components, other than those specified came from my favorite bead store The Beadin' Path in Freeport, Maine.
See, it's out of balance and the clasp is totally wrong (the Lucite tube probably is too).Miss Erin, thank you so much for hosting this creative challenge! Please visit Erin's blog for today's participants and the chance to win a prize!
