Each month one of the Art Jewelry Elements Blog contributors makes and gives away a component to the rest of the other AJE contributors, as well as to a couple of lucky winners. I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate for the October COM Blog Hop! The component for October is this beautiful copper Ammonite piece, made by Kristi Bowman.
I was so excited to be one of the lucky guest participants! I love Ammonites, copper and texture and Kristi united all three into one lovely component. I already had several design ideas before I received the component in the mail. I had recently seen some gorgeous Fossil Coral beads at Lima Beads, that I thought would look great with the component (good excuse to buy some new beads!).
And this is what I made with Kristi's component
I really like the pattern and color of the Fossil Coral with the copper component. I had the copper S clasp, with the spiral pattern in my stash. I had made the wire spiral clasp, but it made the bracelet too big for my wrist, so I made another bracelet to stack with the Ammonite bracelet.
To see what everyone else has made with their components, please visit Art Jewelry Elements Blog for the list of participants and a link to their blog.
