Some Eye Candy

Well, my weekend guests haven't arrived yet and I have the house to myself this morning. So I thought I'd post a few pics quick of some pieces I have been able to throw together quite quickly for myself. I've been playing around with decoupaging lately.... being a scrapbooker, I already have so many papers, glues, glazes, etc.... And of course, peacock images!

Here is a necklace I made, simply strung onto black polyester chain.
Here is a bracelet, in a muted color palette that I love!I wore both of these items to work this week, with different outfits. I'd love to make more decoupaged pieces, especially if I am going to go the all peacock route soon. The possibilities are endless when you think that you can create virtually any pendant or focal bead you desire out of a favorite pattern, picture, drawing, etc... You can get a variety of bezel type components specifically for mixed media, or you can use any flat surface bead you like. Here I used a black wood pendant I had from Michael's, and a bamboo bead I bought at a bead store last Fall.

Those are both so pretty! Great images. I love the colors in the bracelet.
