Two for Tuesday: Victorian Mourning

Hey look, I remembered!

All the Two for Tuesday sketches I've shown you so far have been from the same sketch book. And I found another one I think might interest my readers.

Victorian Mourning came about when I was planning on going to a Victorian craft show in Galveston, TX. I roamed around the internet for inspiration and came up with this design...


Early last year I got around to making the nickel silver centerpiece. Then I beaded it with black and off white seed beads. Who says plastic cameos aren't just as gorgeous as the real thing? The necklace is part of my senior exhibition and remains one of the most recent pieces I'm proud of.
