AJE Component of the Month Reveal
Once a month Art Jewelry Elements (AJE) hosts a component giveaway and jewelry reveal. December’s component was made by Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio. Members of the Art Jewelry Elements team, plus a few lucky guest artists were given one of these awesome ceramic snowflake pendants to design with. Today we get to see what everyone created!
I received one of the turquoise snowflakes to work with. I decided to highlight the triangular shaped points of the snowflakes, by using some bicone shaped beads and by creating a triangular shaped clasp.
The triangular link is based on a link from Cindy Wimmer‘s book The Missing Link. I used a bit lighter gauge wire and made it a bit smaller, so it wouldn’t overwhelm Diana’s pendant. Then I used the same basic idea, but created a hook on one end, so I could use it as a clasp.
The beads are strung on walnut colored Irish waxed linen. The beautiful batiked ribbon wrapped a bead order I got from Karen Totten of Starry Road Studio. It has some turquoise in it, along with shades of blue, black and green. So pretty and it was a perfect finishing touch for my necklace.
