When I was in Chicago, a friend/student gave me a really nice pendant. I am very excited about making myself something with it. Here it is:
It has some words to a Pink Floyd song:
For long you live,
And high you fly,
For smiles you give and tears you cry,
For all you touch,
And all you see is all your life will ever be.
It also has an image of a bird and lately I have been very drawn to birds. For the past couple of years I was drawn to butterflies and images and things about butterflies kept coming to me but lately it has been birds. So this pendant has a lot of meaning for me. And I love Pink Floyd. Yes, I know, it's not heavy metal but a girl can't bang her head all the time. Can she?
So far the plan is to make a mixed media Fragments pendant like the ones featured in the Autumn issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry. Oh, did I fail to mention that? Yes, it is true! I have another article in Belle Armoire Jewelry! It is the Fragments pendant, done in mixed media. For the pendant above, I think I will try a double strand. So that means I need a photo and I had these bird stickers. I just have to decide which one to use.
Also, I will be in San Luis Obispo this weekend teaching some classes. I think there are still openings so if you are in the area and want to have a fun beading day, then come to Naturally Jennifer's and sign up! I will be teaching Bohemian Lace and Fair Isle.
As for now, I've got to pack things up and get cracking! I need to hit the road soon!
Have a great weekend everyone!
