I've been having some fun over here by taking some of my favorite art pieces and making them into little glass pendant necklaces that I can wear with my t-shirts or give as gifts.
This is certainly not a new thing but it was the first time I've tried it. It might be new to you also
so here are the links that were very helpful in getting me started:
If you're like me and live out in the middle of nowhere, you can buy your supplies from this excellent on-line merchant, Annie Howes ,who sends them very quickly and sends good quality materials.
The cable necklaces or cord necklaces and can be purchased at Hobby Lobby or Amazon.com. I like the ones with the magnetic clasp. They are also pretty on unique silk ribbon cords. Shop around because they really vary in prices.
I can just imagine some of the beautiful jewelry my blogger friends can make with their fantabulous images and then share them with their friends and family.
I also have a new art journal (moleskin) and I decorated the cover with some molding paste and paint.
It's the 7th for me, but a new one always feel like a fresh start. It holds the hope of my new art, my improved art and my own art signature upon the universe. I often imagine that a great-great-granddaughter will open them up and they will be like a treasure chest of inspiration for her own passions someday....
If you some ideas and better links about these projects please share them in your comments for myself and others who might be interested.
