It's been a little while since I've been chosen to receive the Component of the Month from the Art Elements (formerly the Art Jewelry Elements) Blog. I was excited to learn that I would be one of the lucky ones to get to play with one of these amazing ceramic donuts from Kristie Roeder of Artisan Clay! Kristie uses recycled glass that gets fused to her pieces during kiln firing and the results are amazing! I didn't have a clear idea of what I might want to make when I entered, but I knew that I would figure it out once I had mine in my hot little hands.

I was torn between stringing and wire wrapped links, but went with stringing in the end. I used a mix of vintage and modern glass beads, pewter, and lavender and cape amethyst beads for this long necklace. I'm really happy with how the beaded dangles turned out too! So much so that I think I'll whip up a pair of earrings to echo the flower bead unit in the middle.
