June Synchroblog - Pinterest Project And YOJ 2013 Week 24  

Saturday, June 15, 2013

This post will be about a simple pendant that I made to fit two different projects: the June Synchroblog, which this month is about something that inspired us on Pinterest, and also about the Week 24 of the YOJ project 2014.

I've kind of lost my mojo the last week or so, I didn't feel like making jewelry at all. I guess we all go through  those uninspired times, and I'm right now in one of them.

But I knew I have to do something for the two projects, so I made this basic pendant with a dyed turquoise bead.

First starting with the Synchroblog project, a group of artists who blog every month about something specific. I've linked the project here, so you can read more about it, if interested.

As to this month's Pinterest inspiration, I saw this particular pin of a lovely copper pendant with a dyed turquoise, when I remembered I have somewhere one of these dyed beads as well.

As for the YOJ project week 24, the entries are about Commitment. So with this simple pendant I'm committing to go back to basics of making jewelry. I've been doing all sorts of rather complex things, but I can't for the life of me two two identical shapes. So having bought just now Jodi Bombardier's new book called Artisan Filigree and started working through the first project. There are tons of beautiful filigree shapes that can really get me up to speed with these types of scrolls and weaves, so I'l work through each of the projects in the book.

So here are a few photos of the piece I made with copper and dyed turquoise bead that I had at home.

Finally, let me end with the links to the other Synchroblog members so that if you're into blog hopping, you can check them out as well. I know I will.
