What's shakin'

Hi all!  I joined an Alice in Wonderland blog hop coming up in June. I started my piece tonight.  Here's a little sneak peek.  I am not sure if I am using all of said components shown here.  I am playing around with what I am going to do but the watch case is a definite. 
 Now this piece is really cool!  I got the pendant at Bead Fest last summer and have been holding (hoarding) it since, not sure what to do with it.  It is lampwork on a gun shell.  Sweet! 
I am going outside of my comfort zone and beading/stringing.  No wire wrapping, just straight up beading.  Beading is not as easy as a lot of people think.  There is that pesky finishing work ie:  crimping, CRIMPING, UG crimping which is not my favorite. hee hee I for one have a hard time with finish work.   I prefer wire wrapping and doing things free style. So we shall see how this turns out.  
I also have an order to finish.  A knotted ribbon necklace that I must get to this week.  I will be back with the finished gunshell piece.  TTFN TA TA for now!!  xoxo

Quick Update

 I just wanted to pop in quick and say hi!  Here are a few pictures.





The beads and components are from etsy sellers.  The copper head pins, jump rings and patina'd charms are from Melinda Orr.  The enameled beads are from Susan Kennedy.  I can't wait to make earrings with these beauties.  

My goal this week is to get collage bracelets and pendants created.  I ordered antiqued ball chain and tiny ball chain  necklaces for my pendants.  I will share as I create.  

I hope everyone is having a creative and beautiful week.  TTFN!!!
