Once again I have the honor of being featured on the Jewelry of the Day website. This time the piece featured is not for sale through my own website. The piece featured on Saturday, September 6th, is Kelsi’s Angel. This is the piece for the Preeclampsia Foundation fundraiser. I have posted a little about Kelsi and the process for the Angel in a post a few weeks ago. Here is the link to that post.
If you get a chance please take the time to stop by http://www.jewelryoftheday.net and check out some of the other VERY talented artists. I am so honored to even be considered on the same level with these people. There are some AMAZING people out there.
Here is a picture of the original chain I made for the angel. I decided to change it after wearing it to church last week. I have long hair and it kept getting caught in the chain. Not only that, but the chain is so pretty and the angel is so pretty that they compete with each other. I decided to remove some of the links and finish it out with a simple round loop chain. It is every bit as pretty, but they no longer compete with each other. I also added a patina to the angel and chain to help highlight the details in both. It really is a beautiful piece. I hope I am able to raise a lot of money for the Preeclampsia Foundation.
