Unconditional Love

Over at Dezinaworld this week’s challenge is “Mother & Child”. The Mother & Child image I selected is from Divas D’Este To Mom With Love CS. If you look at this CS you will see the image I selected is the smallest on the sheet, begging to be made into a piece of jewellery.
Using the glass circle (glass circle is slightly smaller than a 20p piece) as a template I selected the part of the image I wanted then used some Glossy Accents to adhere the circle to the image. I trapped copper wire between the rear of the image and some greyboard (greyboard prepared with Gesso then painted and finally a sealer). I laid weights on top and left to dry overnight. This was now ready to add jump rings and beads. Maybe it is because I have a weakness for ribbons but I love jewellery made with ribbons/velvet/lace. I scrunched up some salmon pink ribbon and frayed the edges before forming a bow.
Using such images would make lovely jewellery for a Mum to be. On the rear initials or date could be added to personalise the piece.

i June has started a new challenge, Papercrafts Prize Challenge. Pop on over to read the rules for entry. Everyone will win and the deadline is 4th December.
ii There is still time to “win” my latest Giveaway (see the post “Joy”). The cone will be filled with little bits ‘n’ pieces. The winner’s name will be posted on 20th November.

      I know how stunning your jewellery is, especially as I am the lucky owner of one of your necklaces. If I had £1 for every time I wore that necklace I would be incredibly wealthy!! Lynne x
