Ode to the Sunshine State!
However, I will spare you all since that's not necessarily my strong suit. :)
Instead, I thought I'd explain why this Florida inspired project for the Cousin Corporation is based on the SUN!
While the sun was shining strongly in Ohio today, there are several months of winter doldrums when we don't see the sun at all!
It's amazing how that can affect your outlook on life.
It's something many people don't even realize! It's a thrill to be able to escape during snow and ice in Ohio and head to sunny Florida.
It is rejuvenating and magical and while the blues of sky and water are next on my list of Florida goodness, none of it is possible without sunshine!
This shiny gold chain did not need much embellishment because it is SO shiny!
The bauble is the 12 bead right angle weave using faceted 8mm Champagne Crystazzi rounds AND the rhinestone rounds.
This is definitely a project to try if you haven't made the bauble before! Let me know if you need instructions and I'll head to the archives. :)
By the way, the earring focal is the "golden" bead I mentioned last week.
