Another resin focal

I worked on another piece with a resin focal yesterday - this time I turned it into a bracelet.


This is a pale grey mother of pearl resin focal, combined with freshwater pearls in pale grey, rhinestone rondelles, crackled rock crystal beads and copper.

Now I have to get ready for another weekend of Advent exhibition. I wonder if anyone is going to come? The newspaper printed last week's advertisement again, instead of the new one I sent; meaning the dates are wrong. Do you think there is a chance nobody will notice that detail???

I just wanted to message you to say that serendipity has led me to your blog! I found a large moth struggling in a cobweb outside my house today and have rescued it, but didn't really know how to care for it after wards. I typed "how to rescue a moth from cobweb" into Google, which came up with your blog in June which talks about your jewelery designs "moth" and "cobweb", and how you rescue a mole that had got into your house. Funny where the internet takes you!

i think that people don't always attend to details and that they will assume if it is in the paper it is for this weekend...
really great focal and design... her face shimmers against the mother of pearl, as if you are seeing it as a reflection in water... very ethereal...

The bracelet is lovely. Hopefully the paper will print a retraction for free.

Renate,
I just love this bracelet and especially that it is on MOP. The image is perfect! Is the MOP piece of one your flea market finds?

Renate, I love these resin pieces you are doing. The colours are so calm and the feeling is just so right. Just imagine where you will go if you can use all of this gift you have with the metal clay you will do.

Hope all goes well for your Advent weekend. I know how much work (and emotion) goes into preparation.

Hugs, LeAnn
