Premiere post & September's 2nd Rockin' Resin Design Team Project!

Hello everyone!

We've been meaning to get our blog up and running for what seems like forever, and while it still needs a few tweaks here and there, I think we're ready to go live! It's a pretty exciting step for us, as blogging is one of the biggest ways to reach many audiences and to network with other crafters and bloggers. And as if that weren't enough, I really do love sharing my personal affection for the pieces we create. I hope you'll enjoy it, as well.

Now, on to our second piece for the Rockin' Resin Design Team! It's a little belated, as this was our second September project.

I have to say, I really loved doing the Sweet Necklace from earlier in September and getting to try my hand at decoden - it was truly a great experience, and I send so many thanks to Megan for putting her trust in me! But our second project was just as exciting - jumbo pearls!

She also sent us some really gorgeous cameos, big flower beads and smaller multicolored beads. I accidentally misplaced the green flower when it came time to assemble our piece, but I plan to put that into another necklace later on. There wasn't a giant process to creating this one - basically just deciding what to put where and how to go about constructing the necklace. 

It was so fun to play with, though! I've never actually gotten the chance to work with such beautifully large beads, and I learned a lot about it - mainly, I need stronger jump rings! The weight of the necklace is too much for the one that I used, but that's an easy fix. 

In any case, here is our completed project - I might have to keep this one for myself. ;)
