AJE October Compnent Reveal!

Welcome to my first component of the month reveal for Art Jewelry Elements
So I am writing this post as the wind and rain of Sandy are starting to announce her presence.  I am actually getting a bit nervous so I have to make this post short and sweet.

I didn't think I will have something to share with you all this time around which would have made me feel terrible since this is the month that everyone is working with beads I made.  Yeah you know I couldn't not have something so I took a little time out of storm prep this morning after volunteering at school and forced my muse to work for me.  It actually worked. 
 
Here is what everyone had to work with.....
 
And here is what I created today. 
 
It actually matches one of the other 2 reveals I have going on this week IF Sandy lets me.  I used my own beaded beads and a leaf and then had some fun with twins and bezeling the pearls on each side of the leaf.  This has a lot of bling factor and is a bit heavy because of the firepolished beads but you know what I think I like it!  I didn't think forcing Rhiannon (my muse) to make my fingers work would create something I like but hey I could not not follow through with my own hop could I?
 
So head over to the Art Jewelry Elements blog to see who else is playing along!
 
Stay safe my friends!
Hugs and Blessings

  3. Hi Kristen,
    Oh I am not worthy to be in the same league as you, you are amazing! I love, love, love your bracelet! The colors are so rich and warm, so much so, that it just makes me feel warm looking at it. Gorgeous! Oh and I see that you used that stitch with the twins from the necklace we were looking at on line, great job. Stay safe, warm, and dry through the duration of Sandy my friend.
