Work in progress 1
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it. ~ Roald Dahl ~
In my last post, I showed you the diverse treasures I discovered at the flea market. This is one of the pieces I am currently working with. An art nouveau style key hole escutcheon made of brass is the starting point for what will become a necklace. I have been playing with various colour schemes and have finally decided green and violet will be the colours. They seem so in tune with spring (which I wish was not so far away). Now I will decide how the focal piece will be accented by the glass beads. This means trying different combinations of bead stringing, wire wrapping etc.
I will post more pictures as the piece develops.
