And now, the story begins...
Our first creation
"Trinkets" - a ribbon tassel necklace made with vintage Sari silk ribbons and tied onto a vintage horse tack ring. The tassel has been adorned with Joanne's wonderful "Doof" component, a copper bezel that she created - isn't she lovely? Our tassel is attached to a hand knotted crystal necklace with a filigree bail.
Our next creation
The loveliest pair of whimsical wings you ever did see! ☺ They didn't need much because they're so beautiful on their own. These resin wings by Joanne were soldered by us with a touch of filigree. We crown thee "Princess Lilybell".
Ah, but wait...
Here lies the crowning glory. This seed bead flower of loveliness was made by Gianna. This flower has a raspberry rivoli crystal center and is dripping with chain, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals and more fantastic resin wings from Joanne. What beautiful, magical sprite wouldn't love this??!!?? ♥
It was so fun to be whimsical! Joanne, you are the "Twinkiedinky" that put a sparkle in our creations.
Here is what we sent Joanne for the Swap, hop on over and see what she has created!
