So the back story to the inspiration on this piece is interesting and I love how it all came together. Or at least to me it is. It starts with it being the holiday season and 3 of my dearest of best friends always end up back in my hometown. In the years that we don't fly back- we Skype on New Year's Eve or depending on plans- New Year's Day. This year it was New Year's Day. Not knowing when exactly- I head out to Michael's because I had really wanted to pick up some silver leaf to have on hand for this challenge. I had always wanted to try this technique as well. The foil on pc with alcohol inks applied technique has always appealed to me. So I'm at the store- my friend texts me they are all gathered- so I get my leafing and head home. We always open our gifts together. (awwww.... how sweet) I received 3 beautiful pieces of jewelry and one of them is a dichroic glass pendant. BOOM! While what I created is not specifically faux anything, It's such a pretty pendant and the fact that I had bought the leafing... had the inspiration piece... I could hardly focus to talk to my friends... (mostly kidding) All I could think about was the silver leafing. I HAD to make something... like right then....er... as soon as we got done Skyping. So this piece was created.
Not a bad start... not a bad start at all.
