Spring is in bloom

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that it looks nothing like the original. I've put my own spin on it and made it my own. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! You need basic skills to create this piece. And DON'T be afraid to try new things! I bought the alcohol ink 6 months ago and was too afraid to use it until the last month or so. I absolutely love the look the ink brings to store-bought pieces! You can make plain things into something completely different!! One word of caution, though... SEAL your project with lacquer before wearing it! The ink will come off of the metal.

What you will need

  • I used permawire
  • Vintaj brass chain and a flower charm
  • Swarovski crystal
  • fuchsia dyed jade beads
  • dog tooth amethyst
  • and alcohol ink.

I love it. Some time ago I made a bird's nest out of a lighter ga. copper and robin's egg blue pearls. But you really have me wanting to expand the idea like you did. I'm glad I came across it. Thank you.

Absolutely Beautiful! Do you have it in another color?
holly.ross.05 answered:
I'm working on a couple that are similar. I don't make exact copies of any of my pieces. The newest ones are in orange with fire agate and blue. Not sure what stones will go with the blue. Also, the flowers are a bit different with the new ones--the hibiscus style flower is on backorder. :(
