I was lucky enough to be a recipient once again over on Art Jewelry Elements with their component of the month. This time around it was Niky Sayers who was giving away lovely components - and I was super excited to get this gorgeous clasp (yes, that's not just an old penny - it's a clasp!) to work with. Look at the fat wee wren!
Also (and I'm so impressed I remembered to snap this), just look at this gorgeous tin that it arrived in! How cute is that?
I decided to keep things sweet and simple and reached into my ever-expanding stash of glass flower beads, and came up with this piece. I took my colour cue from the lovely lampwork flowers from Linda Newnham, which seemed to go perfectly with the lovely patina that Niky has brought out in the clasp.
Now go see what everyone else made!
