I've completed step 3 - March's project - of my JA (Jewel-aholics Anonymous) 12-step program from my earlier post "My Addiction" just in time for St. Patty's Day.
Since St. Patrick's Day is in March it was inevitable that this month's project would celebrate the lucky holiday. Besides, who couldn't use some of St. Patty's Irish Green Luck?!
I gathered together several green and gold items.
I even found two 4-leaf clovers amongst my jeweled treasures.
I settled on a brooch for my focal piece. It was missing three of the original stones so I took the opportunity to add the words, "Good Luck Wishes" which I printed onto some green colored decorative paper and covered with ICE Resin®.
I also encased the gold 4-leaf clover (which I grunged-up a bit to age it) in the resin to appear as if it were magically floating.
For the dangle, I chose to use a jeweled link
and attached an earring to it.
Visually, it's a fairly weighty piece so I added a heavy vintage chain which I embellished with a few links from a different chain along with a wire wrapped green stick pearl.
Good Luck Wishes to all of you on St. Patrick's day and everyday after!
