Another Mixed Media

About this design:

I made these mixed media ...necklace and bracelet...for me. I'm not sure if they are saleable...and they are really me. I got the two hearts as gifts on an order.


ceramic hearts, Carnelian nuggets, sari silk, rubber ring, African bead, Czech glass, Earth spirit charm, copper chain, piece of leather, printed cord and large hole blue/gold beads

    I think it’s beautiful. I don’t know why you wouldn’t think it could sell. You have great colors in this one. Strong robust colors. But you should definitely keep it for yourself if you love it. I don’t give away or sell a piece if I love it. It’s all mine. I can see where you would want to keep this one.

    These are both lively & fun pieces and should be a blast to wear. All the tidbits of silk add such a nice feel to your work. Enjoy!

    Thanks to all for your comments!! I’m waiting on an order from LB, where I’ll be able to finish some dainty little gemstone necklaces. I hope they turn out well…I’m excited about it.

    Sweet Jane, I knew this was your work the minute I saw it. You mix your media very well and give it such wonderful and cheerful color.

    Love this especially the bracelet. Of course I am partial to any touch of sari silk. The colors are wonderful. Wear it and enjoy.
