IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SHINE

Hi Everyone!
Today was run around trying to get some banking errors fixed and the dreaded grocery shopping. Both are at the bottom of any of my lists. LOL But it is done! I finally had time to finish a necklace that has been on my table for awhile. My very good friend, Lori Cook from Outoftheflames, sent me three piece of incredible dichroic glass in blues. They obviously came from the same batch because they lined up perfectly. I loved that. Using glass adhesive I glued them together following the lines. Perfect! I used my layered flatwork technique on Nicole's BeadBacking and then backed it with blue leather. All the beads are silver lined or color lined and the shine on this piece will blind you. I mean can you say "BLING" Herringbone and peyote stitches are used for the bail and the strap. It fits perfectly on the neck and the tree branch dangles fools the eye for symmetry. Now here is the catch, you may have noticed that I don't create many things with blue. I like blue, it attracts me, but I have a very difficult time working with it. I think because blue "floats" The color draws the eye upward. The next time you are in an art gallery be aware of how your eyes move across paintings, the blues always lift and carry away. With that said here is my Shinny Blue. Hope you enjoy it.
