Good afternoon, everyone! I have a fantastic project created by alumni design team member, Heidi Blankenship, to share with you today 🙂 Now, I must admit that I am terribly late posting this project. Unfortunately, my preparation for Creativation really got in the way of my blog post writing 🙁 BUT…better late than never, right?
Here’s a look at the gorgeous gold and bronze necklace that Heidi created for ButterBeeScraps:
Heidi used a large gold skeleton leaf filigree (#672-G) as the main pendant on this extra-long necklace. She then hung three different lengths of gold chain from the bottom of the large leaf. Heidi added a small bronze skeleton leaf filigree (#670-B) to the ends of two of the chains, and created a small beaded bauble for the end of the third chain. Here’s a closer look at the pendant:
To create the bauble, Heidi strung a couple of different sized glass abacus beads from her stash onto a bronze ball end head pin along with a gold and clear rondelle (#BD008-G/CL), and gold bead cap (#CAP857-G). Heidi also combined these same elements together, which she incorporated into the chain of her necklace:
And if all this wasn’t enough, she added two more small bronze skeleton leaf filigrees (#670-B) to the chain that sit on either side of the neck:
To tie everything altogether, Heidi chose to use both gold and bronze colored chains (#CH779-B), doubling up on the chain nearest the main pendant.
I have to say that I just love the beautiful warm tones of this piece, and I hope you do, too! Thank you for popping by today. You can also find this project over on Heidi’s blog, so I suggest you hop on over and share some love with her 😉 I hope you enjoy your weekend and all the new products that are being introduced at Creativation! Cheers!
