AJE Component of the month reveal
I was a lucky winning participant and eager to get my hot little hands on a labyrinth pendant from Jenny Davies-Reazor as part of the December Component of the month on the ever inspiring Art Jewelry Elements blog. It sure is perfect imagery for this last day of the year.
I ended up with this long necklace featuring Jenny’s focal and complemented by my polymer beads, a little glass and some wood rounds. The idea of a labyrinth had me looking at things I do all the time looking for patterns. Like how I brush my teeth, how I drag a tea bag around and out of a cup, and how I do many things working with polymer. That lead me to wanting to include overlapping infinity symbols since that’s a motion I seem to fall into naturally. So I started with a bunch of rich blue beads and a snake of cream clay and well, no two are alike in the end. I then “glazed” them with tinted liquid polymer.
I also found that I have a sand labyrinth that I’ve never tried out.
Wishing you all lots of inspiration and all good things for 2013. I hope you will join me in seeing what everyone else created. Thank you so much for letting me join in the fun AJE team.
