It's choc full of Art Beads .... made by my own fair hands I hasten to add ...... based around a piece of Sir Tim Ideal-ology Trinket Pins:
and mixed loops and hooks:
As for the Art Beads, from the top of the dangle there is a round flower ceramic pendant with a loop (there should be a version of this at the Galaxy shortly after Xmas). This one I glazed in a nice beetroot glaze and the background is glazed in a Celadon (it's pretty, but I have to say that the colour is a bit patchy on it as it is the first time I used it, and you never know with ceramic glazes what you are going to get the first time you use them especially). I added a nice little ruby gem to the middle of the flower using Glossy Accents as I haven't got in stones that can be fired into place yet.
Next down in line is a round Shell Bead glazed in blue, which was wrapped with silver wire (some green and blue faux pearls added along the top of the loop) and then the "Partridge" bead (again there will be a spring version of him in the Shop after Xmas), Underneath him is a silver bead cap and then a further Blue Shell Bead. At the bottom I just added some new pieces that I am working on for spring, the little Beetroot glazed flower connector and a leaf charm in the Celadon glaze, which ran a lot better on this piece, and I love the effect that I achieved.
It's a dangle to go in the front porch along with the fabulous bell heart wreath that I picked up at Sainsbury's today.
If you've read my blog for any length of time, you will have worked out that I most assuredly do NOT love Christmas, but I DO LOVE THIS, and went around the supermarket doing reindeer dashing through the snow impressions - it makes just the noise I imagine their harnesses would make.
