I am so excited that today is the reveal for the Superstition Blog Hop hosted by Tammy from Paisley Lizard.
Mom and I were lucky enough to win one of her black cat polymer clay pendants - and boy Tammy didn't disappoint with this beauties.
Mom and I are cat lovers - so this pendant was perfect for us. Plus we both don't agree that black cats are unlucky - no cat is unlucky especially if they are yours!!!!
So - here is what mom and I created with the bead that Tammy sent.
I wanted to focus on the pendant and I wanted the necklace to be asymmetrical - which it is really hard for me and mom to create. I love these colors and I think it is going to be very hard for us to sell. I am sorry - the pictures just don't do this piece justice!
Another look at the necklace.
The lampwork beads are beads that I made. I wanted to keep to the color of Tammy's pendant - so all I used was a gray base with white feathering. For accent beads mom and I used fresh water pearls and gun metal spacers.
So - that is it for the first piece. If you would like to learn more about black cat superstition click here.
The second piece mom and I created is an homage to the letter 13 and a black cat again. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the number 13 (of course I was born on that date). I even love it more when the 13th falls on a Friday - which today is perfect. Here is a link to learn more about the superstition on the number 13.
For this necklace I created 13 lampwork glass beads and a black cat pendant.
I call these beads Kuiper Belt beads because they remind me of an asteroid field. For spacer beads we have used gunmetal spacers.
For my 13th bead I still used the Kuiper Belt bead but this time I swirled the glass around to get the feathered affect. Then mom and I added the black cat bead to the necklace.
The black cat pendant is a piece that I cast while I was in college. I used silver shot to create the pendant and then I used liver of sulfur to get the silver to be black.
Another shot of the 13/black cat necklace. Now this one I think I am going to keep for awhile before I decide to sell it. Mom said I thought we weren't keeping any of the pieces we make - I said I am making an exception for this piece :)
Thank you so much Tammy for allowing mom and I to participate in this blog hop. It was so much fun!
