Creativeversary


This week was the Creativeversary for the Creative Challenge. A full year of challenges. So, I decided to revisit the first challenge that I ever posted- black and white. It was a little challenging back then and it is still challenging now. Black and white can be so elegant yet it can be tacky if not used in the right way.

Luckily, I had just the most perfect cabochon from Willow Glass. I fell in love with this cab when I first saw it and have been holding it for just the right project. From day one of the challenge, I knew what I wanted to do, but that proved easier than actually accomplishing it. With my new found skill of soldering, I created a bezel for the cab and attached it to the cuff. I added a little chain around the cab to give it a vintage look. The cuff itself has a nice texture to it. Seems I like texture more than shiny. All in all, I think I like it. lol. It looks better on than it does just sitting there. It can be found in my shop.

I didn't get to finish the ring I was talking about, but it will be finished soon so check back. I really like it, and it isn't even all together yet. Plus, I had a sudden moment of inspiration for another piece that I hope I will be able to make they way I see it. Oh, and I plan to go on a yard sale trip this weekend. Hope I find lots of interesting stuff. Check back next week for all that and more. lol.

Oh that cuff is just beautiful. I really like it, especially the chain around the bezel.

I think the cuff is terrific. The glass cab is really unusual and I love it with the copper.
