Art Jewelry Elements January Component of the Month Reveal

For the January challenge, the talented mixed media artist Jenny Davies-Reazor created personalized focals for each participant.

These are made with polymer, words from old dictionaries, and resin. Plus layers of paint. And they are just stunning. 

She asked us if we had a specific word in mind and I told her to surprise me. Jenny surprised me with the word "create." Perfect! 

I wanted something personal for me...a kind of talisman. So I researched gemstones associated with creativity.

What I found:

Citrine: associated with success and good fortune and is believed to enhance mental clarity, cretivity, and willpower. 

Amethyst: perceived as a symbol of heavenly awareness and is said to calm and clear the mind. 

Labradorite: is a stone that can banish fear and insecurity, fire the imagination, and bring clarity of thought. It is also believed to attract success. 

Luckily I love all three of these stones and happened to have some on hand. I included one of each. 

I also wanted something to help "remind" me to create. So I cut two pieces of flat bezel wire (I *think* that's what it is. I bought it a LOOOONG time ago and certainly didn't buy it for the purpose of bezeling.) and stamped one with the word every and day. I wanted to emphasize each word rather than put both onto one piece.

Additionally, I included a single lampwork bead. You know, in case I forget what it is I love to create the most and how much I love those little pieces of glass, the feeling of sitting behind a flame and melting glass and creating chemical reactions. 

You may have noticed the metal pen nib....I included that to remind me to write. I've let my blog languish. I want to keep a personal journal and learn to make quick chicken scratches sketches. 

I haven't decided whether I like the necklace portion yet. I thought that's what I wanted, but seeing it....I don't know. I like the movement of the big hole fresh water pearls and the rhinestone disk things. But it's not really a style I would typically wear.

When I made the charm holder to attach to the bottom holes of the pendant, I was a tad bit...aggressive. I used. 18 gauge half hard wire. There was very little wiggle room in the holes. I didn't really like the look of the wire looping back down towards the charm holder. So I made a coil of wire on the back of each hole to keep it in place.

Here's the cringe worthy part: I hammered them down. As I was hammering (I was trying to hammer gently!) I was thinking to myself...."This is a really bad idea" but I kept at it. And I broke a corner off. I almost cried. But I kept on and finished the piece.

Sorry Jenny. I really hate that I broke my special pendant :( But thank you for the opportunity to work with it. I really love it.

I love what you did here, with the lovely silver work and gemstones. The transparent gems are so nice with the matte texture on the focal. I actually rather like your knotted strands, I think it's nice to keep the strands slender and simple so they don't overpower the focal. Bummer about the breakage, but it sounds like it can be fixed!

If you hadn't mentioned the broken corner, I would have never noticed it. I was too smitten with the rest of what you created. I think it's so cool that you researched the gemstones. And, I love the ones you chose to use. They're some of my favorites as well. What a beautiful reminder to yourself and such a personal talisman. I do hope it works to fuel your creativity. . .as it seems to already be doing the job!

I think what you composed was actually very reasonable.
However, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier post title?
I am not saying your information is not solid., however what if you added something that makes people want more?
I mean Art Jewelry Elements January Component of the Month Reveal | Glass Addictions is a little boring.
You should look at Yahoo's front page and note how they write news titles
to grab people interested. You might try adding a video or a
picture or two to get people interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it
would bring your blog a little livelier.

I didn't notice the corner until you mentioned it... I then looked really close thinking you had fixed it. So, don't mention it and I don't think anyone will know but you!

I love what you did with the pendant and all the personal meaning that is there for you. I think the necklace portion is very nice, but if it's something you don't think you'll wear, maybe rework that part so it's totally you and you'll want to wear it often!

Jenny

Jen - I am so sorry the corner let go on you. I wondered at the strength of the polymer at the holes. It will repair easily, and I didn't even notice it until I was reading the post. And I knew to look for it. I think it was worth it - the clean line at the bottom has a lovely curve, and the attention goes to the amulet/charms/gems as it should.

I am so glad you liked the piece, and enjoyed working with it. But I am also so excited that you were called to make a personal talisman. That is often my inspiration when working, and I am pleased my lil bit of PC inspired you! It looks lovely, i adore the gems, and the pen nib is perfect!

Thank you!

I love the way you researched and carefully chose each element of the dangles for Jenny's focal. The way you shaped the wire below Jenny's piece is so graceful, I'm just sorry that a corner bit broke off. I hope you can repair it. Perhaps it will serve as reminder that creativity is never a straight-forward process. It include setbacks and work-arounds on the way to beauty.

I wouldn't mind producing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you
write regarding here. Again, awesome site!

exposed skin care reviews

Basically cleansing, scrubbing and generally concentrating on the skin can purely be thought of as a remedy
for symptoms, not causes. Blackheads are not caused by dirt; rather there is a
bacteria that normally lives on the skin and thrives on the sebum produced by oil glands.

For men, shaving could be a problem because one can further harm the skin: a bit more
attention and the right choice of the razor should eliminate or at least minimize
the risks.
