I got to spend a little time with some metal and cabs this week. I made time actually, because I was so inspired by Joy Kruse in the Summer Edition of Belle Armoire Jewelry (both Stacie Florer and myself are in this issue). It's an amazing issue, and I was really drawn to Joy's jewelry in it. She bezels rustic stones and uses lots of little add ons as texture. Since my very first bezel, I have added little things to the side, because it was too plain, but OH MY she takes it to an entirely different level.
So I sat down and made this.
And I loved it.
And I was proud of it.
And I posted it on facebook. And I no longer liked it. As I saw it in front of me, there was something that just wasn't setting right with me. The piece just wasn't quite "staci" enough.
So I turned it sideways.
And added some rustic stones.
Ahhhhhhh. Now I love it.
See, a girl can change her mind!
