Echo Creative Club

Jeannie Dukic has started this wonderful monthly
venture and has let me play along.
It is called Echo Creative Club.
She sends us one of her wonderful pieces and we then get 
to create with it.  Have you seen her polymer work?
Stunning!

She sent me an amazing black and white Gin Blossom.
As soon as I got i (I let her surprise me) I knew EXACTLY
what I was going to do.

I so love this piece!




I am in love with wire, it is expensive, but I love it! I knew that  
I wanted todo black, white and red. I did some steel chain, 
some black chain, some
wonderful dark red faceted rondelles. 

The Gin Blossom is a wonderfully weighted piece (not heavy, but hangs 
the chain nicely). 

Please hop over and see what these amazingly talented
folks have created.

Oh honey, I "so love this piece" too!

The mix of steel and black chain compliments this piece so well, it knocks my socks off. The red adds the PERFECT pop of color.

Thank you for creating such beauty,
jeannie

Just beautiful! That pendant reminds me of the rosettes you find in old houses! Very vintage!

Kristen said...

I so agree with your description of the pendant it is perfectly weighted. Your necklace is so elegant and still could be worn with a great pair of jeans. Beautiful!

Oh darling! That is so lovely! I love that it has that shabby chic look. It looks like some aged and painted metal knob from a dresser or something. It is marvelous what Jeannie can do with clay. I love her and her Echo club. So awesome! Enjoy the day.

Such a beautiful piece Courtney! I love the colors you chose to compliment Jeannie's Gin Blossom, and the various wires really add to the rustic charm. Red is one of my favorite colors, and I love how you incorporated it in your piece - fabulous!

I love this necklace! The hint of red blends beautifully!
I agree that these pendants have the perfect weight to lay nicely.

Great work! The red beads make the whole necklace pop and are perfect accents.

The designs are very trendy and wearable.I think accessories are very important to complete the look of a person and therefore I like to collect a lot of stuff to y kit.

You did Jeannie's gin blossom proud! The red rondelles are the perfect contrast to the seamless cohesiveness of the black and white. So beautiful!
