With this preamble, please accept my apologies for being late to my own party (shame on me!) and please allow me to welcome you to the party the CC7A is hosting: The Circle of Love.
If you recall, I tried to send every one of the CC7 artists a gemstone doughnut. Most have not received (we figured out it is custom related, lesson learned), but they graciously went and either found a doughnut in their stash (we are all hoarders, don't you know it?!) or bought a similar one.
I invite you to see what they all created with their 'circle of love' for the larger 'circle of love' (I am in a fractal-like state of mind, but that's entirely another story!)
Monique Urquhart (she'll post a tad later)
As for what I made? Of course I couldn't resist and got myself the turquoise doughnut and this is what it became:
The infinite links were done some time ago, for another necklace, which I never finished. They matched this new design so well, I could't resist using them! The 'leaf' is from a set my mom sent me - I still have a few components to re-use from it.
I made the 'hurricane' links myself, and it wasn't very easy on my hands. But I love the chaotic look they have and they seem to match the rest of the links very well. At least I like them :)
As you know by now, I need fabric or pure metals on the skin, so while the necklace has a hook (I will replace it, it is ugly), I decided to make it length extendable. This cute little link does just that: allows the chord to be lengthen or shorten as you wish.
