Again, I need a larger necklace bust because you can't really see the full color scheme in this picture.
I started with a brass bird chain that I found at Michael's and took a few birds off of it to use more as links than as actual chain. Next, I added wire-wrapped links using bronze Parawire and vintage etched pink glass beads.
Then I used the birds again to transition to the back half of the necklace - which is composed of more wire-wrapped links this time featuring coin-shaped pale green glass. It picks up the green in the bird picture quite nicely.
And here's a better shot of the complete necklace. It's a simple design, but I felt there was so much going on with the focal that I didn't want to detract from that. And that's my "Sing Your Heart Out" necklace.
And now for a few random thoughts (because they'll keep swirling around in my head until I get them out):
1. Am I the only one who has been freaked out by the ads for that movie "The Devil" - y'know, the part where the girl frantically screams "TURN ON THE LIIIIIIGGGGHHHHHTTTTSSSSSS!" I suppose the worst part is that I often watch TV in my bed late at night with the lights off and kinda start to drift off to sleep and then one of those ads comes on and she starts screaming and WOW! Seriously freaky!
2. And speaking of commercials that are bugging me...could we STOP with the incessant media barrage about "The Event" series premiere? I AM OVER IT! And I'm SOOOO not watching it. It looks like a bad combo of "Lost" (which "lost" me after the first season) and "24" (which lost me after about the 3rd season).
3. Do not call, text, e-mail, IM, Facebook or whatever me tonight between 8-9 PM as I will be getting my Hugh Laurie fix on with the premiere of "House." The only way to get my attention will be to drop a nuclear bomb directly on my house and really? Unless you are my mother (because she thinks I should be at her beck and call at a moment's notice), that's probably overdoing it a tad.
4. There were more random thoughts, but I started thinking about Hugh Laurie and forgot the rest.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
