The focal bead I received is a decoupaged rose image on a black wooden tile. I decided to make a tin bezel to house the tile and provide a decorative image on its back. The color of the tin relates well with the earth tone of the beads.
Paige provided a really fun copper clasp which I oxidized and tumbled to create a lovely gunmetal color.
Detail of tin bezel made to enhance the focal tile.
I also received a really fun selection of flower charms that she'd made from vintage lucite jewelry.
I though one of the smaller charms would make a great ring,
and voila, it's a ring!
This size seven cutie has as 10mm wide band that's cut from 21 gauge double clad silver plate sheet. I've attached the lucite flowers by inserting a miniature stainless steel nut and bolts. The hardware is concealed with a little dab of colored coordinated resin.
Oh, and didn't I say something about a give~away?!
