Margie & Me Challenge: 2010 Color Throwdown

Wow, ich komme gerade von Marcies Blog La Bella Joya zurück, weil heute das Voting für die letzte Margie & Me Challenge in diesem Jahr begonnen hat. Marcie hat uns fünf Farbpaletten zur Auswahl gegeben und wir mußte uns eine davon aussuchen, um ein Schmuckstück zu entwerfen. Ich habe mich für ,,Titian the Venetian" und sein Gemälde ,,Venus von Urbino" entschieden.

OMG, I just came back from Marcie's blog La Bella Joya, as the voting for the finals of the Margie & Me Challenge is open. Marcie decided to challenge us for the last time in 2010. We got five color palettes to choose from and make a piece of jewelry based on it. I chose to go with Titian the Venetian and his painting "Venus of Urbino".




Und hier ist mein Werk: meine persönliche Venus von Urbino. Die Halskette besteht aus einem meiner FIMO-Gesichter, vielen Glasperlen, Süßwasserzuchtperlen, ein Perlmutt-Rechteck und einen handgemachten Kupferverschluß. Es war das erste Mal, daß ich die sogenannten Wire Guards verwendet habe und ich muß sagen, ich mag sie wirklich.



And here is what I made: my personal Venus of Urbino. The necklace features one of my pc face cabs, lots of glass beads, freshwater pearls, a mop rectangle and a handmade copper s-clasp. It was the first time I used wireguards in a piece and I have to say I like how they look.
