Earlier this month I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the winning recipients of AJE's February component of the Month!
This month's component was created by the talented Francesca Watson.
Francesca describes her component:
" They are hand-cut copper discs, about 1" across and lightly domed. Each one has been layered with multiple brilliant colors and heated to create an organic mottled look - these remind me a little of the colors of certain shells when you pick them up wet out of the waves. Each one has been accented with three tiny fine silver "pebbles," hand set into the enamel when it is hot. A single hole at the top of the disc is ready for your jump ring or bail."
Using the beautiful teal in her piece as the basis for my color palette I created this bracelet with her component as my focal. I surrounded it with some other coordinating enamelled pieces which were made by my friend Sonya Stille. I attached all these enamelled beauties to a chain and then shadowed the chain with another string of small iridescent and gunmetal beads. I love the whole palette. *
* after looking at the photos I noticed - one side is all green and the other blue. I am going to go and fix that so it is more balanced in color.
I was so honored to be chosen to take part in this challenge - thanks AJE and Francesca!
