I’m working on some projects at this moment. Some of them are custom orders, others are my Pay It Forward 2012 pieces.
What is Pay It Forward 2012? I got this fun activity from one of my FB friend, Saskia. It’s about giving away 5 handcrafted pieces to 5 persons who left comment on your status. Then, those 5 person have to post it on their status, and give away another 5 handcrafted pieces, etc, etc, etc. Isn’t it fun?
The point is not how difficult the piece, or how great it is. It is love, attention, and prayers that you put into it that matters. I know that every piece I received will be very special, and I really hope that everyone received mine will feel the same.
So far, I’ve finished 2 pieces for PIF 2012. Both of them are wire write name pendant. I’ll post about them later.
For now, I wanna tell you about ARCO pendant.
Arco Pendant is a custom order piece for Dawn. She asked me to design a pendant for her: a hummingbird sipping honey from a tulip.
A cute idea, and it took me quite long before I came to this design.
I still have to add some vines below the tulips, but so far I’m quite happy with it.
Materials used are permanently colored copper wire, glass pearl, Swarovski crystals, Toho 11o seed beads, and shell pearl.
It’s about 3″ height and 1.75″ on its widest part.
The pictures that inspired me
Here’s a bit about ruby-throated hummingbird:
Ruby-throated hummingbird (Archilocus colubris -now you know why I anamed him Arco lol) are known because of their ruby-colored neck.
It is a small hummingbird.
The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is 7–9 cm long with an 8–11 cm wingspan, and weighs about 3 g. Adults are metallic green above and greyish white below, with near-black wings. Their bill is long, straight and very slender.
They regularly nests east of the Mississippi River in North America.
