Teardrop locket, Swarovski crystals, glass pearls, gray stone beads, antiqued brass chain, antiqued brass toggle clasp, custom made mixed media insert
What was your inspiration?
The working teardrop locket was the starting point.
What are you most proud of?
I didn't give up on the mixed-media insert. I used a non-resin dimensional glaze just as the weather turned cold here in Missouri, and it took over a week for the cloudiness to go away. It finally turned clear! Now I know to wait until it's warmer...
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use the right material for the job, at the right temperatures!
