Dark Crystal

About this design:

This is another of my glue me projects. It started with the square-round black filigree. There is a small mirror under it and the circular filigree with the crystals over it. All put together with Bead Fix. (Which someone on this site said was great and it is!) Unfortunately this necklace was not at all easy to photograph. Darn. It is 16" long with a 3" extension and the earrings are approx 1/2" long.

    What a neat idea. I like the picture with the wizard and the dragon too. He does a fine job showing off your work. I’m glad you put in more than one picture. It looks so different in all of them.

    Absolutely fantastic! Is this your own idea or is it adapted from another source? You have inspired me to play around with some filigrees and see what happens. Do you mind if I give something similar a try?

    Oh, Joy! A new idea! :D

    This is great. Even more surprising, today I made a necklace using a very similar filigree, also in gunmetal. Like your idea better. I just wired a round bead into the center to look like a flower. Where did you find a tiny mirror like this? Mind if I borrow the idea? I have a bunch of filigrees.

    Please “borrow” all you like ladies! The little mirrors came from Michaels. You’ll see more of them soon..tee hee. I have been on a glue and layer kick and eventually you’ll probly see more than you want to see!!
