I'm not going to be able to write much as I am in a bit of a rush to get everything sorted for the party tonight (woohoo!). As a quick reminder the December components were these awesome ceramic labyrinth pendants by Jenny Davies-Reazor:
I was really very lucky to be a winner! And even more lucky to receive the pendant that really caught my eye, the lovely dusky coral colour piece seen center-top :)
Unfortunately my original design plans for the pendant were scuppered by a should-have-seen-it-coming failure on behalf of the British postal system. I had wanted to try using some lovely suede strips I found, but sadly they never arrived. It kind of set me back a bit but in the end I just grabbed some beads and some wire and this is what I came out with:
I went for an asymmetric design using picture jasper rounds, picasso jasper rondelles and some contrasting bird-egg blue Czech picasso beads. I think those little faceted beads might be some of my new favourites, shame I used up all but two I received in the sample pack I brought! And that sadly I have been banned from buying beads until January pay day!
Anyway, I need to go get myself ready to head off to Surbiton, so please have fun hopping around the other participants blogs to see what wonders they have come up with :)
