AJE Component of the Month Reveal
Once a month Art Jewelry Elements (AJE) hosts a component giveaway and jewelry reveal. January’s component was made Jenny Davies-Reazor. Members of the Art Jewelry Elements team, plus a few lucky guest artists were given a personalized polymer clay and resin focal that Jenny made for us. Since these components were made at the start of the new year, Jenny chose words to guide us on our journey through 2014. My word was “Courage”. I need courage to try new jewelry techniques without being too self-critical about the outcome during the early learning stages. I also need courage to start submitting jewelry designs to magazines, knowing full well that the process will involve some rejections along the way, with (hopefully) some acceptances.
Unfortunately I’ve been sick for nearly 3 weeks now and after seeing my doctor yesterday, I’ve learned that I have bronchitis. Now I know why I have been feeling so exhausted and lousy. Which is to say that, while I’ve developed plans for this focal, I haven’t actually executed them yet. So this will be a work-in-progress blog post. I’ll share my plans with you and when I get this necklace finished, I’ll post an update here.
The focal has an old-fashioned, elegant antique vibe to it, so I immediately thought of a wonderful old bracelet that I picked up in an antique store about a year ago.
