Aggie's Bling

About this design:

You know I had to do one of these eventually. The orange and purple ribbon inspired the colors. I made the Y-shaped wire wrap piece to attach Aggie to and below the pewter washers. That was an adventure! :)


Copper chain, copper artistic wire, raspberry crystals, red aventurine rondelles, pewter nuggets and washers, silk ribbon, and our Miss Aggie, all from LB ! Flat round peach aventurine beads and a pewter toggle.

    Anytime, Asia! I am sure the lesson will be for me, too! I think you have a really good eye and I like your perspective.

    Adorable! I rather like the copper and silver mix. Very fresh. A great way to “sell” copper to die-hard silver fans like me! Love the sparkle from those big chunky crystals.
    I gotta know: WHY is she called Miss Aggie? I’m guessing you chickies have been calling her that for quite some time. :)

    Thanks! You guys are so sweet! You should have seen my 2 daughters-in-law when I showed them! :) I know, that wasn’t a fair test for them to have to pretend this was a cool piece. :) When I told them I knew they wouldn’t wear it they relaxed a bit! Julie, the Aggie “story” will be in your messages. :)
