Dreams

The last two days I have been working with resin, I love the outcome but always get nervous pouring the sticky stuff. Had some difficulty yesterday with some over spill but it all cleaned up well today. Here is one of the pieces.."Dreams". I could not decide if I wanted a long or short necklace, so I went somewhere in between at 23". I am not sure if this will stay like this, as I am still debating. So, tell me please what do you think...long or short? Being long I was worried it would look like a badge hanging, or maybe I am just over thinking it...it has been one of those days.




I hope you've got your "Green" on today... Here is a little Irish toast for you...

May you be rich in blessings, poor in misfortune,

Slow to make enemies, quick to make friends.

But rich or poor, slow or quick,

May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.

  1. Hi Judy! I love love love this design. How did you make that cool bezel? Or did you buy it someplace cool? Keys I am fanatical about so this piece definitely speaks to me. My personal preference for length...I like to make them long, like 32-34" (23" would hit me squarely on top of the 'girls' and they don't need any more attention than they already get!) then you can choose to double it and wear it long or short! Thanks for sharing your beauty with the world. Enjoy the day! Erin

  3. Judy, I love your new necklace! I don't think you need to worry about it looking like a badge - oh no! Your metal and stamped pendant is a beautiful piece of art jewelry. I agree with Erin, I prefer longer pieces.

  4. Love your new necklace. 23" is considered to be the short length of "matinee" (up to 27"). My personal body does better with a shorter 18"-20" considered "princess" length. Did you use the new product Ice Resin? I have not tried it yet but it looks interesting. Happy creating...

  8. this is really pretty - i love all of the details that come together in the bezel... i happen to be a 16-18" girl... but everyone is different... i don't think it looks like a badge at all... after you put a lot of work into a pendant, it sure is nice to finish the whole piece, isn't it? :0)
