The next piece is a sterling Viking Knit chain. I was always afraid to use sterling because I hadn't gotten to that comfort place with the technique. Sooooooooo, I got brave and did it. This time the clasp and pendant are purchased this month. In the new months, I hope to make them from metal clay, polymer, who knows?
The third piece is a copper embossed, beaded focal with a copper Viking Knit chain, purchased clasp. I call it Ancient Summers.
Finally, several years ago, I downloaded a photo of an oil painting, and realized I wanted to do a bead adaptation of the work. So, I contacted the artist, Shirley Novak, and she very graciously gave me permission to do so. So, this is not a tracing, it's my own humble bead sketch of her cool painting. I just now got around to this, so 4AM was a perfect place to share my story. Here's Ms. Novak's original, titled A Flock of Poppies.
And here's my version.
