What happens if you mix up two techniques you don’t master?
I think that the final result depends on the lucky you have and this time luck was on my side.
Last week I stumbled on this youtube video and find it very inspiring. And you know, I had to give it a shot.
I picked a big cherry quartz glass and started my project.
First of all I had to make a sort of bezel to set the pendant. It took me two hours to come up with something decent and workable.
It didn’t look great, but I knew it would have worked. So I took several pieces of wire and from now on it was all a wrap-and-thread work.
At first it looked pretty messy and I felt lost. But I suddenly remembered that there was no thing as wrong nor a pattern to follow. It was just the wire and me. As I realized this, everything became simpler.
Full of hope, I kept wrapping and threading and the next thing I remember was that the design was taking shape.
It all happened in a couple of minutes. I don’t know how, when and why, but a tree was there.
Only the roots were missing and, at this point, they were a piece of cake.
I love it!
