Weeping willow and sunshine


About this design:

Components:

    Oh my, this is a lovely piece. Next time go for it, your work is very good and this is one that anyone would enjoy owning and wearing. I go to the Vintaj site often and this fits right in with spirit of work I see there.

    Asia, you should never feel scared to enter the Vintaj challenge! It’s anonymous anyway… :) and your necklace is great!

    I participate almost every month. I will upload my creation here in a bit…we did something sort of similar at the bottom of our designs but I used a filigree ring and wire wrapped branch for the clasp.

    Out of curiosity, what size jump ring did you get to go through the bottom of that clasp? I’ve got a couple I’ve been wanting to use but can’t anything to go through those holes and I just haven’t been up to the challenge of doing a wire bail.

    Asia this is SO pretty! You really should have entered. I was so nervous when I sent in a pic last month. I didn’t get many votes, but at least I tried. I’m going to do a piece for June.

    So anyway… This is FABULOUS!!! I love the Humble Beads toggle! The dangle leaves are great. Love the patina coloring.

    I love it! You really should enter the contest! But I’m a great big chicken and have no confidence in my ability to win anything, so I shouldn’t be talking! lol!
