|Mom's Necklace, beads by Juls|
While I was enameling mom worked on filing and sawing out some pieces and then she completed her necklace with Juls beads. We both have torn out and re-started our pieces several times, but mom got her necklace done first. Thanks Juls for those beads! Love, love, love how the necklace turned out. I now just need to get my but into gear and get my necklace and bracelet done.
I finished up the piece for a friend's baby gift. My friend is into fantasy, castle's, sci-fi, rune stones and so forth. She had specific colors she wanted for the baby, so we tried to get all of the above into her gift. Mom came up with the design, cut it out, and told me the colors to use. My only contribution was the enameling. I need to get a better photo of the gift, but here is what I got.

The other pieces I enameled were the bird for my Splendor necklace design and pendants based on the four elements. Two of the pendants I used in this month's Monthly Challenge on Art Bead Scene blog. The other two pendants I think I am going to use the same design for the necklace as I did the Challenge necklace. I am also throwing in a photograph of the beads I made for the monthly challenge necklace.

I did get the necklace done for the September Monthly Challenge, with the help of mom. She helped me choose the accent beads, laid it all out, and then helped me string the necklace together. She was even my model for the necklace. So hip hip hooray for mom! She is such a good egg. Here is my piece for this month's challenge
