Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month Reveal - Rebekah

It is reveal time and I am so excited to be a part of it!  Rebekah of Tree Wing Studio is our host this month and this is what she offered.

I have to tell you that I did not notice the "love" printed on the side because I was so enamored with the perfect look of driftwood.  I tell you it is like she took a cookie cutter and cut it out.

I new instantly when it arrived what I was going to pair it with and how I was going to hang it.  My friend Jan of Molten Mayham has been dabbling in resin.  She has sent me some gorgeous piece and she is loving doing it so much she will soon be opening a shop.  I will be sure to let you all know when she does. Believe me when I say you will love what she is creating.  She had sent me this key.  She knows I have an affinity for keys and what they represent to me.  Love, Challenge, and Surprise behind every lock.

 I had originally thought I would embroider it but with the clear background any fabric would have drowned the picture out.  I did not get a picture of it before I bezeled it.I was going to but I became so wrapped up in making it work as I have never bezeled a square before.  I love the way it turned out.

From there I did another figure 8 chain.  I was going to do multiple layers but when I completed it and hung the heart it just felt perfect to me.  

I introduce you to "Key to my Heart"

Now I would love it if you went and checked out what our team and guests have done with their hearts.

  1. What a wonderful necklace, all those beads must have taken forever to put together, the way you beaded around the key is so lovely and I love brown and black seed beads to match Rebekah heart. Very classy beautiful necklace!

  2. This is a beautiful necklace, I love the association of elements, the elaborate key,the bezeled cabochon and the beaded chain that give it a steampunk feel.

  3. Oh wow, Kristen, that's awesome! I love what you did with the resin piece, and the heart is perfect for this! Way to go!

  4. Those are so cool - I love what you did with them!

  5. This is a beautiful piece. Love the resin and the heart is perfect with it.

  6. Love the square bezel, it's a beautiful design!

  7. This is just so perfect! I do love that key element, and Rebekah's heart hanging from your lovely bead work is fabulous.

  8. Excellent - the oval image in the rectangular resin cab is interesting. I like that you left it open to see through. And since I attached my heart in a similar way - you know I like that too!

  9. I"m a little late to the party here...but can't help but commenting anyway. This is beautiful!! I love the bezel on that resin component, and it pairs perfectly with the heart! Brava my friend!!!
