Hello all you beautiful people. The day has arrived for the B’sue Boutiques “Change It Up” Blog Hop and the final reveal. Before I get started I would like to take a moment to enlighten you all on what has been going on with me these past few months. At the beginning of the year I was investing my time in finalizing my father’s estate and completed that in June of this year. Along with that I was visiting and helping a sister of mine going through some health issues. Lastly, of course, I take care of my 3-1/2 year old grandson during the week. All of these matters precluded me from participating in the group as I would have liked to. Sometimes that’s what life is all about. I’m back in the game now and ready and raring to go.
I am very excited to be participating in my first B’sue Boutiques Blog Hop and reveal to you the vintage piece I have created. Participants have been given a list of components to choose from to create their jewelry.
My component of choice is CUFF09815. I have used this component on several of my pieces and in different metals. I love this cuff, however, the majority of the time I cut the cuff in half and work it up as a pendant/necklace. I have never been disappointed.
I have chosen to make a vintage choker/necklace. Components are pictured below.
The cuff has been cut in half with metal shears and coated with Ivory Iced Enamel. The focal is an oval MOP Cabachon in a Vintage Mount and Cameo with a layer of B’sue filigree leaves nestled around the mount. Cold connected to the bottom of the cuff is a B’sue Raw Brass Bow Stamping and suspended from the bow stamping is a Teardrop Pearl that I found in my stash and it worked beautifully.
The 18″ neckchain was worked up with B’sue Book Chain, 4mm Czech Glass Pearls and size 11 gold lined seed beads that are woven through the book chain. The pearl section is 5-1/2″ with another 3″ section of book chain. I have made several bracelets very similar to this pattern and they are just gorgeous and feel like liquid.
The neckchain is connected to the focal with two B’sue Boutiques 16mm Raw Brass Circlets. So, without further ado, I would like to reveal to you my Vintage Pearl Cameo Choker Necklace. She is a beauty.
I would also like to share one of my passions, Polymer Clay Creating. I love working with polymer clay, making flower canes and creating flower assemblages. I would also like to share some of my past assemblages with you.
I have recently opened an ETSY shop, Hearts Dezire by Irene, which is in the very beginning stage. I have a few items listed and a big pile of my creations that are ready to be added to my store. So in a few days I would appreciate it if you take a minute to visit my shop and give me a “Like.” https://www.etsy.com/shop/HeartsDezireByIrene. Many listings to come. Thank you in advance.
