With A Little Secret
It is sealed within the chrysalis and I really love the idea wearing a prayer, an appreciation, a wish or a hope for something. I imagine that it will spread it´s wings and fly off to come true.
The chrysalis is made from a tutorial by the artist Lori Wilkes published in the magazine Belle Armoire Jewelry.
I love her idea of the metamorphosis and the stages the caterpillar goes through to become truly beautiful and able to fly.
I made a few of these pendants earlier and you can see them here. This one has the word create on it.
I honor the ability to create and express myself through what I make. To me it is a gift.
I applied some slices of an old cane on it. The colors are made using a skinner blend and the chrysalis is textured and painted after baking.
I happen to be very pleased with the colors. All that learning about colors in knitting has certainly paid off!!!
I made a ring from the leftovers to fit the chrysalis.
It is so nice to create in polymer clay. I will never ever regret learning that. I always go back to it and enjoy every minute.
