The entrants bought a challenge-specific assortment of vintage beads from AGOS and had a few weeks to design. The top 3 winners received gift certificates to buy more great vintage stuff. What could be better than that?
I entered... and I won grand prize! Can you believe it? I was surprised. No really. When you go to the FB page and see all the other entries, you'll be in awe, too.
This necklace was made with a cage work technique, meaning all components (except cabochons) are wired to the filigree base using a fine gauge wire. This is a fiddly technique but oh-so-satisfying to make. I feel like I'm carrying on an almost-lost tradition when I make this type of jewelry.
See the wee hummingbird on the flower? That's Fancy, and this necklace is part of my Flights Of Fancy line.
Thanks for your visit today.
