When I write a post about jewelry made from something goofy, I sometimes debate whether to show you the finished jewels first, or the source material.
This time, much better to show you the jewels.
Have you guessed? Here's a look at the deconstructed source material...
I like how these jewels evolved in my head. I started out with simple shapes, embellished with bead dangles, as in the green drop earrings below.
But as I tried layering some of the shapes, I became very pleased - the material sort of became its own embellishment and no extra beads were needed.
Have you guessed yet?
Okay, here's what it was:
Hee hee. I am quite proud of myself for not titling this post "No Fly Zone, " or "Don't Bug Me," or any pun with a bug in it. 'Cause I coulda.
Anyway, hope you liked the results.
Oh, wait - one last goof. It's Comic-Con weekend (a really big deal, here in Tinseltown), and I was thinking...If Nichelle Nichols needed something to wear to a Star Trek panel...
I'm just sayin'.
