I did futz with the design quite a bit as originally there were a lot more of the large pink ceramic beads going up that side of the necklace, but they turned out to be too heavy compared to the weight of the pendant and they were pulling the necklace out of shape so they had to go.
I was a little concerned at first that it might be too much to have both butterfly pieces in the same necklace, but now? I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.
Here's the rest of what I created with resin over the weekend, too:
More pansies - can't resist 'em!
Another scrapbook paper bead set. I punched up the vintage-y vibe on this one by adding a pewter rose stamping, a tiny pearl and a tiny green crystal.
Look - I'm all "menswear" and stuff with mixing florals and stripes!
This is my first test piece with a new set of artwork - lots of lovely leafy images in fall shades that almost look like they've been "pressed." Lots of copper, carnelian and maybe some butterscotch jade would be fabulous with this!
I just like fairies. I can't help it. This little one is sitting on a branch fluffing fairy dust into the night air. She's surrounded by an antique silvertone bezel.
I've named this one "The Lilac Fairy." Now, I'm sure those flowers probably aren't lilacs (because I know absolutely ZIP about flowers), but I don't care.
I really like that in this image, the figure is not distinct. Is it a fairy? An angel? Some other mystical winged being? You (and your subconscious) get to decide. Personally, I'm going with angel. But, I threw in some glitter anyway...y'know, just in case it really IS a fairy.
I'm looking ahead and trying out some "winter" artwork, too. This is a single snowflake image.
And this is a veritable snowstorm of flakes - with some frosty glitter thrown in.
A unicorn charging through the surf on a beach - kicking up some glittery, magical spray in the process.
A unicorn in a magical forest.
Perhaps my favorite unicorn so far (Erin - check out the crescent moon!)
I've got one more new experiment I tried out with the resin, but I think I'll wait and post about that tomorrow!
