Week 5 - A Little Alice Crazy

Here we are in Week 5 and I'm going strong. I managed to squeeze in some creative in between work and a beachy weekender! I took my little man to see Sculptures by the Sea. It was a delightful outing, wandering along the beach, veiwing the amazing sculptures, followed by fish and chips on the grass.
I'm going so well this week in fact, I have not one but two creations to show you!
The first is an Alice in Wonderland inspired piece. I made the pendant using a pendant base I got in goodie bag from ArtChix. I adhered Alice Images on both sides using Diamond Glaze, my favourite multipurpose adhesive/glaze. This is for me so I wanted it long. It sits just under bust. I gathered up some Alice related charms and voila! Here it is!
 The second is another necklace. I have had these bamboo tile components hanging aound for some time. I purchased them from Wishware Beads. I originally wanted to use the pendant horizontally, making a double strand necklace, but as I got closer to the end I realised that it just was not going to sit right! Very frustrating! So I unpulled it all and began again. I am quite happy with the end result. It features two handmade lampwork beads by my friends mum, czech glass beads and bamboo tile pendant.
