Here Comes the Sun: Art Jewelry Elements Rebirth of the Sun Challenge

Sun pendants from original post

The Art Jewelry Elements challenge this month is celebrating the rebirth of the sun during the winter solstice.

I actually posted a comment on the blog post about the Re-Birth of the Sun - Winter themed challenge and Giveaway and we won one of the pendants from the drawing.

So, here is what mom and I created with the pendant we received.

First - this is the sun pendant we received, THEA Elements by Lesley Watt. I was an idiot and didn't take a picture of the pendant before we assembled our piece - so sorry about that.

Mom and I loved the colors and we actually had some Viking Knit chain created that was going to work perfectly with this piece.

We then used accented gold and gunmetal spacers from the Viking Knit to the pendant.

We also used one of our lampwork beads to dangle from the bottom hole on the pendant. Mom and I thought the colors matched perfectly with the pendant. I am usually not an orange person - but I really love the colors of the sun pendant and the lampwork bead pendant.

Mom and I have had this Viking Knit created for about a year - but had no idea what to do with it. It is good thing we didn't just trash it - the chain works perfectly with the pendant.

A final picture of the piece we created.

Mom and I want to thank Lesley for the gorgeous pendant and getting us motivated to create in the new year.
