Last month Artbeads.com gave their blogging team their choice of CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements to blog about. I'm a bit late with this, but I hope it's worth the wait! Artbeads.com made it real easy to design 'In My Mind' just by browsing their offering of jewerly artist supplies.
I came up with an idea and was able to flow through ordering this-n-that components to satisfy my initial design ideas. When I received my order, I laid out the 'bounty' and started lining up patterns, mixing in beads and findings from my own supply. Feeling good about the patterns and colors came quickly. Once Alice came together, I could not have been happier!
Like many others my love for the charismatic Alice in Wonderland / Through the Looking Glass started with the Disney animated classic film. Enamored with Alice's Adventures, when in high school, I choose to read the book/s for an oral book report where I studied the 'backwardness' in Through the Looking Glass. My new line of Jewelry Wardrobes reflect my jeweled interpretation of Alice's Adventures.
In this phase of my Alice in Wonderland line (many more are in various stages of completion and planning) I have used Swarovski Red Magma crystals, Pearls in Bordeaux, Black and White, a Lilly Pilly pendant (I am so in love with these! see Use The Muse posts), and the key to making this Jewelry Wardrobe work - silk ribbon! To round it out I used various beads and findings from my personal stash.
Each necklace is different length and can be adjusted however you like.
The smallest necklace can also be wrapped around your wrist for a stunning bracelet!
Earrings made with Woodland Brass Fleur de Lis are also included in the Wardrobe.
So - luxury designs - worn however you wish! Comment and let me know what you think about Alice & this Jewerly Wardrobe!
