Fall Necklace and Santa Pin

These two designs are painted on the jewelry dominoes which are predrilled and a very addicting surface.

I found lampwork beads in my "stash" that worked real well in the

colorful fall necklace. As for the Santa Claus pin...that was a bit tricky working the beading wire into the holes so it didn't show, ending off, etc. but I think he turned out "kinda cute" for my first dominoe pin. The fall scene design is free flowing which means that the dominoes have not been glued together..but the Santa dominoes on this piece have been glued. On the back is the usual ladder pin back .

About Me

My photo
Bend, OR, United States
I have recently started some new artistic journeys. A slight branch in the road from my first love which is painting. I am hoping to combine my painting abilities with a bit of mixed media to stretch my creativity and think outside the box. I am also doing quite a bit of jewelry design and love the steampunk assemblage although I also love creating jewelry using handmade glass lampwork. Hopefully my journey and the information/photos on this blog will inspire others to think outside the box. Please check out my other blog and my Etsy site by going to my website. Thanks for stopping by....
