The Solar Flare blog hop was based on a different idea than any other hop I've participated in before now. Our blog hop host, Sam Siegel of Ultimate Supplies, caught a cool image one night-
Then he found out his picture was taken while this was going on:
Pretty cool, huh? So he had the great idea to offer a blog hop based on the solar flare images. Each jewelry designer used these images as the inspiration for their unique jewelry creation.
I liked the idea, and I'm excited to participate.
I am sad that I haven't completed my piece... Life kind of messed up my project time-line. Getting the part in Charlotte's Web, getting sick, & having both of my girls home sick last week...
However, I've got a pretty good start on it, and expect to have it complete by tomorrow night. I have finished the wire-work on the focal segment and I wanted to share that today.
(Don't worry, that's not all I have completed, it is just all that is shareable at this time.)
I am currently twisting the central section using pearls, crystals and stones. I'll need to use chain in back and attach a clasp. I'm looking forward to having the whole piece put together by late tomorrow night.
For some more fabulous solar flare inspiration, check out the rest of the blog hop participants.
