Check out the previous linkups by clicking on the sidebar button, add your link below, and have a little fun. The Fourth Friday of each month is the time to be here. Sometimes I post the link on Thursday for scheduling's sake and for bloggy friends in different timezones. You can add your link until Sunday at noon- or thereabouts.
My make for this month is a ring, using a bronze toned adjustable ring base, a Catholic medal fitting the base, beads and a crystal pendant on a loop or bail. With a dab of glue, jump rings, pliers, and patience I put the ring together. Why patience? Seed beads and my eyes are not friends! I used two magnifiers plus my own reading glasses all at the same time and kept at it. Lucy was company and managed to keep me from throwing in the towel. Result- I have put the seed beads away in favor of larger beads.
This medal has a prayer to Mary, the Holy Mother. I like the contrast between the bronze lacy edging, the crystal, and the strong colors in both the beads and the ring setting. This is one way to use those medals and charms that come in the mail without asking for them! I realize the photo is not perfectly clear, that's due to me, my eyes, and not perfecting the shot. If I can get all three merged in a better way, I'll replace the images.
