Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month Reveal - Side of Love

Whew I have been through computer hell this morning!  I was going to get this all written yesterday but we ended up taking longer on a day trip than planned.  It seems that thinking I could get this post all done and out first thing this morning was not what my computer had in mind for me.  Anyway on with this awesome reveal!

So this month it was Melissa's turn to make pretties for us to play with and boy she did not disappoint!!

Melissa works with and enamels metal.  I love enameled metal.  All the beautiful color blends that come from torching glass!  Most of you know that I am totally not allowed to play with fire as my family still wants a home to live in, so I am truly fascinated with those who can play with it.

I love hearts and in fact they have come back into play in my creating as of late.  So you know when I got this I was beyond thrilled (although once again in my excitement I forgot to get a quick pic before she was a necklace!)

As soon as I saw it the colors popped for me.  And actually I cheated a bit.  I had made this chain a while ago when I had yet another idea for twins (you know I love those two hole wonders) and the colors I choose were classic me.

Black and Pink!


I was so happy that the pendant and chain were a perfect match.  All I had to do is bail it up.

That did not go as quickly as I planned but I love love love this piece.  Thank you Melissa!  Now lets go check out what everyone else did!!!!

  11. What an adorable component to be working with, you were indeed blessed. Your beaded rope goes perfectly with it, both in colors and in texture. It is truly a fantastic piece and I bet it will receive many, many compliments each time it is worn.
