Well it is time to reveal what I made with the beautiful clay components Lisa of Grateful Artist blog sent to me. Here is a picture of what she sent to me a few months ago.
I lost the sheet that Lisa sent with the clay components, so I can not tell you who created these lovely clay components, but I do know the pendant was not made by the same person that made the beads.
I thought that the pendant was so pretty when I opened the package a few months back and how the beads matched it so well I was surprised when I read that they were by different artists. I knew what I wanted to do and it involved CRAW, but as the date got closer to the reveal I had a change of mind and started a Herringbone rope. I just was not feeling the rope, so I did a Kumihimo rope, did not like that one either. I was walking by my bead table and noticed that the pendant was laying by some Tiger's Eye gemstones and I thought, yes that is perfect. I also pulled out some Lapis as a contrast color and here is what I created.
The Tiger's Eye has the same tones of brown and golden tan as the pendant, and the rich blue of the Lapis compliments the brown well. I am really pleased with the results.
Thank you Lisa for hosting such great challenges they really make you think hard before creating something with the beautiful components that you send.
Please go and see what the other participants in the I Love Clay Blog Hop.
