Cup of Tea

Cup of Tea

     We went for a short, leasurly walk, above our house and found some mushrooms!   They are just coming up.   I wasn't expecting to do any, real walking so I took my drink with me.  Good thing,  I needed something to put all my mushrooms in.    Our tulips are also opening up.

   I kept the pendant as a pendant and made a new middle, focal point.  I used my "Rosey Earring pattern" (Tuesdays post) for the sides.  The bracelet measures, just over 7".

Bracelet?

Bracelet?


      I wanted the set but didn't know what I wanted for the middle focal point.   I was looking for an Ankars-style pendant, and came across CM-Handmade's Pendant.  I add 6-mm, pearl beads on the outer pedals to give it more depth.  Still using three strands of sewing thread.

Ooooooo

Oooooo


    I love the way the gold and reds/pinks came out on the last butterfly, I had to make a pair of earrings to go with it.  I loved this so much, I thought I'd share my "Rosey Earrings," pattern with you.  The two small rings in the front, go over the middle bead.

    Ok, by now you should know, I love the metallic sewing threads.  So, I had to make a butterfly with three strands of it.  This gives it a rich look.
