Welcome to the hop! today is the reveal for Kristi Bowman's End Cap Blog Hop!
Here is a wonderful picture of what these beautiful end caps started out looking like:
They have the most wonderful colors and shapes, and I wanted to highlight them in my design. And because I have a really hard time using pieces and parts as what they are designed for, I knew I had to create a design that highlighted these beauties as the focal.
From the beginning, in my head this design was very simple and sleek and decidedly feminine. So without further ado, here is "Grace":
I used lengths of a larger gauge wire, hammered out the ends, punched holes in them and slightly curved them with my fingers. I also added a few seed beads and spacers on each link to add some subtle movement and interest to the piece.
These end caps are so beautiful, and are available in Kristi's etsy shop: Kristi Bowman Designs. Thanks so much to Kristi for organizing this hop! Take a few minutes to visit these wonderful designers to see what they have done with their end caps:
