|FEAST YOUR EYES!|
I made this pendant YEARS ago, back when I first discovered the joys of E-6000 glue. That was...wow, 4 years ago. Around the last time I attended an anime conventions. Ugh... Scandalous.
At that time, I had fallen in love with Visual Kei (Think Hair Metal- except with men in drag... for some reason) and Harajuku fashion trends. They were so new and different and often included cutesy accessories that look like cakes. I tried emulating some of their elements in my art and jewelry design with varying success.
|Oh how lovely.|
|Check those details. Mm. So sexy.|
I was at a loss as to what to do with it. It seemed too pretty to attach to a brooch finding. That would have been the easy way out, you know? At the time my stash consisted of Czech glass beads of varying quality and even then I recognized that against this level of intricacy and quality, whatever design I came up with would be a flavorless imitation of 'style'. So, I held on to it for FOUR YEARS.
Now, I did find something to do with it and it turned out much more brilliant than I imagined. I will show it to you...in my next post. Check back on Wednesday for the finished design.
