Summer Jewelry Challenge Project #7

Here is my version of project #7: "Woven Windows Pin" from Deryn Mentocks Summer Jewelry Challenge. I decided to do a pendant instead of the pin, and I think at some point I might do some matching earrings. I ended up sealing the actual woven part of the pendant with a triple-thick glossy glaze, as the paper I wove in between the copper strips needed to have a little more support and structure so it didn't come apart. I think the gloss adds another dimension to the layers, and makes it a little more interesting.

I'm going to have to slow down a bit as I was commissioned to design and construct a mosaic piece for our local Breast Cancer awareness organization's auction to raise money for the upcoming 3-day/60-mile walk. I am going to design a piece centered around the word "hope", as I believe that hope combined with faith is what helps women become survivors of this disease.

Molly,

Great job! You are leaving us in the dust! This piece looks like it would be fun to wear with a denim jacket, a pair of well loved jeans and a white blouse.

You are just zooming past the rest of us. I like how your weaving turned out. the gloss sealer does add that shine to offset the metal framing.
Good Luck on your commission piece.
