BJP - WIP - January
My shape for this challenge has ended up a Teardrop.
The starting point for this piece is my own hand-made black and gold scroll bead that didn't make it into a necklace in it's own right (poor thing).
I thought the orange felt background was suitable for showing off both the black and the gold. All other colours that I auditioned had a muted effect on one colour, and I want both colours to stand out equally on this.
And then I started the embellishing with gold beads.
When this pendant is finished it will be heavily encrusted all over and hopefully have the light reflecting off it in all directions.
The bugle beads semi-circle are in two colours - gold and copper. I think they work well together. The orange background was a good choice here as it enhances the gold and copper beads.
I'm looking forward to working on the next section of it during this coming week.
Very pleased with the progress made this week.
