Wearing of the Green
I was asked to create a necklace and earrings set for a contest to launch Everyday Inspirations, a blog founded by my daughter Angie and her friend Ashley. The goal was to create a piece with sufficient green to celebrate the St. Patrick's Day opening blog post. With help from Angie, I selected green glass beads, copper spacers and findings, crystals, and seed beads. The copper maidens on each side of the necklace were added for an Irish look and feel. The design process was largely trial and error, and it took longer than the assembly itself.
