I have a couple of students that provide a lot of inspiration. They are the two Shellies. Shelli Keller and Shelley Herbin. They take most of my classes and are a lot of fun to have in class. And double the fun when they take a class together. Shellie Herbin took my first Infinity pendant class. She made her pendant in copper with beautiful Padparaschda and Golden Shadow Swarovski, along with bronze pearls. Using copper for the armature and the pearls on the bottom half was a true inspiration. She also said she thought she add a crystal drop to the top half. Unfortunately, I haven't seen her since she finished it and she hasn't sent me a pic! (Hint, hint) The original sample is the one in the middle on Silver-filled wire. This is a replica of the one I made for Andrea at Christmas time. The blue one on the left is Shelli Keller's. She used Montana AB rounds and bicones, along with dark blue pearls. She's my color guru. She has an innate sense of color and whenever I'm stuck, she helps out. So when we had class, she ran around BBW grabbing colors that she thought would work for me. I love the burgundy, and Satin Rose combo. This pic doesn't do justice to these pieces, but when you see them in person, they are fab! Thanks to my groupies....Shelli & Shelley! Anyone else game? Send me a pic of what you've done with your piece.
