Some of you might know about the new ribbon slides from Vintaj. Well, this is one of them, but this is not what they normally look like! Now why would I want to use something as is, when I can change it!! Not that I had to, they are gorgeous in their natural state! I just love to experiment!! You just never know what you will be able to do unless you try something new!! To see how they look without alterations follow my link.
I really love the way it turned out! It almost looks like an old rusted piece! If you have any alcohol inks, feel free to try dripping on a fun metal piece, the results may surprise you!The beads are a mix of Czech glass from Cbeads on Etsy. I wanted to make it as random as I could to give it a more rustic look. I made the hook myself, although I found I had a little trouble with the wrapping. I am going to practice this one a little more and hopefully the results come out better the second time. The hook is from Kerry Bogert's fantastic book Totally Twisted!! I linked it to her website so you can know a little more about Kerry and her wonderful book.
These designs were all featured on the Vintaj blog for my Designer highlight!! I am very pleased with the amount of comments I got, I love to hear what others have to say about the things I create. I also got a few more followers and fans, I also have some interest in my tiles!! Now I guess I will just have to entice everyone to come buy some!!
Stay tuned for more of Skye Jewels coming soon...
