Rush is ON!
Today is THE day ~ the day that “Rush” begins for the Bloggerette Sorority over at Karen’s Some Days Are Diamonds. Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to print out the Bloggerette’s picture and create something with it. Then blog about it. And include a photo of yourself. Up until that last part I was totally into this. However, the self-portrait thing isn’t exactly me. If it were up to me I would NEVER put a picture of myself on my blog (although I know I should put one in my little Google avatar thingy…one of these days).
Anyway , I was NOT in a sorority in college. I was what they called a “G.D.I.” or G** D***** Independent to be exact. Be that as it may, I must REALLY want to be in this Bloggerette Sorority if I’m willing to post my picture lol! Well, here goes.
Since I make jewelry, it was natural for me to create a necklace.
I printed the picture and placed it in this precious photo frame, hanging it on an antique brass chain and adding a pewter toggle. Then I added three hanging charms ~ one is a silver heart salvaged from an old charm bracelet, one a dangling silver and rhinestone gem and finally, a vintage purple faceted crystal bead, taken from an old pair of earrings. (I thought the purple went perfectly with the photo’s background color.) Oh, and I added the crown above the frame for effect.
And last but not least, here I am wearing the necklace, up close and personal.
I really am glad I finished the challenge because I absolutely LoVe the necklace! Hhhmmmm…maybe some other Sisters might like one as well? Who knows, maybe I’ll put some in my Etsy shop for the rest of the girls! lol! Anyway, I’m going to head on over to Some Days Are Diamonds and start checking out the links for some of the other sisters’ blogs. Can’t wait to see what they created! Thanks, Karen, for hosting this fun blogging experience!
