Artisan Blog Hop day 9

Hi Everyone and welcome to your next stop on the 2011 artisan award blog hop! I am so excited to share with all of you the creations that were made for this award. There are ten stops on this hop, so be sure to make it full circle to see everyone's talent. If this is your first stop, then once you get back to me you have made it the whole way through. If thus isn't your first stop you should be coming from Sandra Farrell 's blog. Doesn't she have such amazing projects! I am a 3-D kind girl. My favorite two projects I did are by far my 3-D entries. Here is a picture of the necklace and box it went in. I have so much fun making this. I wanted it to be a three layer necklace so I started with a simply adorn chain and wove baja breeze seam binding through it, added a key charm and a few small pieces of ribbon. The next layer I took 5 plain wood beads, stamped them with a flourish from tiny tags, then "stained" two of them with crumb cake and three with soft suede, threaded them on our lace and tied a knot between. The last layer took the most time, I first I braided three strips of fabric together. Then I made a bunch of flowers out of our vanilla satin ribbon, colored a TON of pearls with a tan colored sharpie and added them to the center, then backed them with a piece of leather and attached it to the braid.

Here is a closer picture...
