August AJE Component of the Month Reveal
Our August Component of the Month was created by Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio. I had the pleasure of spending several days with Diana and her husband, Colin, prior to Bead Fest, last week. (More about that in another post.)
This has been a crazy, busy month for me, so this will be a work in progress post. I have enough of the necklace finished, that you can pretty much picture how it will look when completed.
Using waxed linen, I knotted on Diana’s stoneware pendant. Then I knotted one of Lesley Watt’s stoneware beads above the pendant. I love the rustic textures in both Diana’s and Lesley’s pieces. They look great together.
To the right, I knotted on a patina’ed copper bead by Miss Fickle Media, a stoneware bead by Mary Hubbard and another stoneware bead, whose creator I don’t remember. To the left are a matte finished tigereye stone bead, a ceramic tube bead by Karen Totten and 2 of Diana’s beads.
The back will will be some combination of the wood and glass peanut beads that I picked up at Bead Fest. I’m pleased with how this is turning out and look forward to completing it. I’ll let you know when it is in my shop.
I am always delighted to read your comments! Hope to hear from you.
