And welcome to my Reveal for the One Crayon Color Challenge!
I apologize if the post wasn't up if you were by earlier. My attempt to post before breakfast didn't work. I was distracted by chants of "Pancakes! Bacon! Coffee!" So, now that Kids and Man are fed and caffeinated, I'm back where I belong. Heh.
So, then, the color I chose for this challenge, black, is one that I tend not to work in much. It's weird, I tend to have a lot of black clothing. But not so much in the way of jewelry and accessories are black. I guess that's where I pull the color into my outfits, in the accessories and jewelry. So working and planning something in this color, and monochromatic at that, was a challenge. But fun. However, since I don't have any black or steel wire to use, it's not a completely monochromatic theme. But, then, this is me. And I needs me my metal and wire! So Fail on that, I guess, but I'm cool with it ;) And here's what I came up with.
First off, we have a simple necklace of black and antiqued brass. All of the components in this piece were created by me, specifically for this challenge.
|Swarovski cubes and Czech glass rondelles, both in black, were the first things I pulled out of my stash to work with.|
|The focal, simply because apparently I can't work without a focal, |
is brass that I etched and patina'ed.
I also created a pair of earrings.
|These earrings feature wonderful antique brass buttons...a sneak peek into what our lovely |
hostess sent to me for the Button Swap, hosted by Cindy Wimmer! Which you'll see on May 13th :)
I'd wanted to work on a bracelet, but honestly, I plain ole ran out of time! I hope you're enjoying yourself on this hop...I know I am! Please don't forget to visit everyone else who's playing along! :) Happy Saturday folks!
And I'll leave you with a video...
The Glee version of Back to Black, to stay with the color theme.
