Here are the jewelry pieces that I created with my special gifts from Mary Harding I won them from Art Bead Scene. I absolutely love how different these pieces are! Each one is a reflection of my personality.
This bracelet fit the vibrancy of this month's Art Bead Scene challenge so well it made it easy and delightful for me to put the two together! I absolutely love!!! the silk string, ( I'm guessing it's silk ) it is so pretty. It worked well with the beads that I made to meet the challenge too. I also was able to have some of my beautiful flowers blooming at this time that I felt reflected the colors of the challenge.
Copper Leaf earrings, hand shaped and colored with embossing enamels and pastels. Silk gifted from Mary Harding.
Copper leaf pendant hand shaped and colored with embossing enamels and pastels.
Asiatic lilies, sun drops
Beads from Ragged Robyn. and Michaels. Czech flower and leaf beads.

The era of this painting is the 1920's. Here is a poster from 1920 showing the Art Deco fashion and jewelry style of that time.

I was very fortunate this month to receive a random pick comment winner from Art Bead Scene's posts. I was given a gift certificate from Mary Harding for $20.00. I chose the toggle clasp but she put this sweet ceramic heart on it with this beautiful string that I will be recycling for this month's Art Bead Scene Challenge. Than you, thank you Mary!
What's really neat is that in December I was the random pick winner too. I won a gift certificate from Ragged Robyn. She is located in the U.K. and I was expecting the package to come slowly especially since it was holiday time but it eventually came just this month. Every day I went to the mailbox and I kept telling my kids, " It'll be there! " I had hope!!!! ( DRAMATIC BACKGROUND MUSIC!!!) and then there it was. I whipped those beads into a necklace for ME of course right away. I will post soon! Thank you Robyn!!!
