A little something extra....

When I first started working in bronze, I hung the pendants from simple chains.  About 2 years ago I started mixing different sizes of chain and adding little beads here and there.  A little something to catch the eye. 

I spent the last 6 weeks prepping for an art show.  And during that time I saw my necklace designs evolve.  I no longer liked a little something....I found myself drawn to necklaces that had a lot more to them.  Probably because I have all these beads hanging on my wall that are just screaming to be included in a design.


Here are some of the pendants and necklaces I made over the last 6 weeks.  I made good use of all those beads.

Oh how timely! I'm about 2 years behind you Gail. I've been putting my pendants on simple neckwires for the past 3 years but lately they look boring and unfinished to me. I love how the work evolves into something new!
