Hera choker by redLillith Hera choker by redLillith
My half of an art trade with the ever amazing, stunningly talented :iconellygator: . I sent her some black opals and a kyanite teardrop, and some vague reference to Celtic knotwork and art nouveau and she came up with this! [link]

She requested green, with a peacock theme. The rest was my rampant imagination, fueled by her recent submissions involving peacocks, a certain Lucius, and that stunning peacock fan wall-art in her gallery. ^_^

Antique venetian lace (hand-dyed), brass art nouveau stamping, peacock feather, countless iridescent seed beads, and 9 emerald faceted tear drops (all strategically located). Don't even ask me how much time this took or how many times I altered it . . you don't want to know! :P

Ships out today!! :dance:

lol . . decadent, eh? must be the peacock feather!

just wait . . there is another far more lush and decadent one in the works just for the sheer point of inspiration . . a really wonderful collaboration with another artist here who like me never really does those with our jewelry. ;) it'll blow everyone away . . at least, that's the plan!

Ooooo.. even more lush? *goes a bit crosseyed at the thought* I can't wait to see that!!

And I know.. you very rarely get to just play.. which is sad, cuz those you have done tend to be some of my faves! I.E. Camille, the blue rose, the rosary chokers.. etc lol

oh yes . . . very much so more lush! :excited: think things like white opals, white feathers . . . etc. ;)

I do! heck, to point, I have 5 different randomly inspired pieces sitting on my work desk in various states of completion that are just driving me to distraction! I hate when things aren't finished due to lack of available time as opposed to supplies. >_< vexes me nearly as much as the post office does!!!

aww . . thanks for saying that hun! :hug: I know my random pieces aren't nearly as popular as the commissioned stuff . . . .

I am hoping it will be even more amazing than it is in my head!!! and when I consider whom I am collaborating with, I get all giggly and goose-bumpy. :giggle: my collaboratress is out of town currently, so I must await her return. otherwise, the really tricky parts are on my desk! :excited:

oh yes, I do have all the parts to finish the 5 currently in progress . . it's just time I am always short on! ah well. eventually. one I really want to rush to get to finish is a piece inspired by and in honor of one of my idols .. . Bettie Page. that one I am really excited about! it's not often I work in pearls . . . .

lol, well, for whatever reason, it is good to know someone out there gets excited to see what my brain concocts! :hug:
