It is time for another installment of She made/She made between Christine Altmiller and myself. The one on one challenge came about when Christine and I met back in July of this year when we gifted each other items that we kept the other half, so we both have the same or similar items. We decided that it would be fun to pick two items a month and make something and blog about it. Christine chose for September and October, I will choose in November and December. Here is what Christine chose for us to create with this month.
My oak leave and drops are not exactly the same as Christine's here is a picture of her's.
I made two different pieces with mine both are necklaces. The first necklace will be with the enameled oak leaf. I can not remember where I got this leaf, but if someone recognizes it please let me know. Being that it is fall I went for a fall theme with this necklace.
I made two mini Cellini spirals and added 4 mm Aventurine, 10 x 8 mm Jasper roundels, 6 x 4 mm orange Czech glass roundels, and green 6 mm bicone crystals. I used copper bead caps, toggle clasp, and I made the bail out of 20 gauge copper wire.
I flatten two of the copper bead caps and strung them on each side of the bail for the leaf. I named this necklace Fall's Splendor.
Next I did a necklace using the red Czech glass drops. I used a stitch that Christine gave me the instructions for, we name the stitch the Zig Zag stitch, which it is really the triangle stitch.
I used size 8 hematite seed beads to make the Zig Zag then around the top I used garnet 3 mm round Czech glass beads and along the bottom I used garnet 4 mm round Czech glass beads up to the drops and between each drop then around to the clasp.
I named this piece Red Sky At Night.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at what I created for the She made/ She made. We were going to post this on October 30th, but being that Christine lives in the Northeast and Frankinstorm is looming, we decided to go ahead and post today. Please go by Christine's blog to see what she has created with her pieces. Come back the first week in November to find out what we will be creating with in November.
To all my friends and family in the Northeast please be prepared for the worst and be safe. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Happy beading Y'all,
