July Strut Your Stuff and a June Winner!

June's winner is ...............................................

Quimera Designs with Years Gone By


Years gone by

I'm not quite sure where the inspiration for this piece came from.
I think I had this shape at the back of my mind, probably from some building.
I knew I wanted to use 3 layers, and I knew I wanted the stone to "rise" above the back layer.
The rhodocrosite was a natural choice because browns and pinks are just such an elegantly beautiful combination.
It's quite a large piece - 2,5 inches from top to bottom and also across at the widest point.
But I love big and bold jewelry - although I'm quite short - can't imagine what I'd do it I were tall!



 
Our prizes for July are a $30 gift certificate to Kristi Bowmans Design on etsy





And a goodie bag from the Beads of Clay Group!
