Artful Gathering http://artfulgatheringfest.ning.com has some great classes and some of you know I am taking Keith lo Bue’s class. http://artfulgatheringfest.ning.com/group/steeling-beauty-with-keith-lo-bue
I guess I needed a short break from my polymer clay so yesterday and today I made the ‘s’ link chain and continued to make it into a necklace. My beautiful Crazy Lace bead gives a nice contrast to the wire and will lay asymmetrical on the chain. The chain is long enough to fit over my head but if I needed to take it apart I can. The jump ring at the stone slips past the partial ‘s’ component that is glued into the bead hole.
Keith also suggests making a photocopy of the components in case we need to duplicate or remember how we did a piece. I’m thinking that would be a good habit to get into for many projects.
