Roses in the Window

About this design:

I used the stained glass bead mix to make wire wrapped links. they are combined with Vintaj fancy oval chain to make a multi-strand component. I used the Vintaj bohemian tear drops as a chain connector, and the focal is a vintaj brass round blank that I embossed using the nouveau roses embossing folder, Ranger alcohol inks, and the reliefing block, then finished with ice resin. the wire piece that frames it is vintaj parawire in 20 gauge and 24 guage, combined with more oval chain. the dangles at the bottom are more of the glass bead mix on vintaj headpins, and one brass canopy bead cap. This is a total digression from what I am used to doing, but I really enjoyed it, and I love how it came out

    I made some simple earrings that match the biggest dangle on the bottom of the focal piece. It was too hard to get them all in the pictures though.

    Ditto NancyMC; it looks very English Royal-ish – like someting I’ve seen in pics of the King wearing a cape or ermine robe with something like this over it. You are TALENTED girl

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love the vintage vibe to it, and using resin over an embossed piece is a novel idea! Keep up the lovely work! =^__^=
