Lesley Watt of Thea too was the host for the November Challenge of the Art Jewelry Elements blog. Lesley offered her newly designed 35mm bronze snowflake disc components to two lucky commenters and I was one of the lucky winners.
The only "catch" is that I had to make something with the disc and blog about it on November 30. Now that is easy enough, or so I thought. I really found this piece to be a challenge to work with. I had several ideas but had to scrap them for one reason or another. If you are so inclined, you can check out the original giveaway post here at the Art Jewelry Elements Blog. They do this often so perhaps you might like to give it a try.
Those are Ingrid Mueller's "worms" (her name, not mine) in a 22 gauge copper heavy wrap along with some silver-lined glass beads that have a aurora borealis luster applied that gives them a dark shiny finish that reflects purples, blues, and bronzes. They really look quite nice with this snowflake. A frosted quartz dagger (my interpretation of an icicle) dangles at the bottom of the focal.
As always, I had a nice time designing with this component. Thank you, Lesley, for your generous gift and challenge and thanks to all the gang at Art Jewelry Elements for the beautiful work you produce to inspire the rest of us.
