Bursting Forth :: Art Jewelry Elements Challenge

When there’s new growth bursting out all over,
everything fresh, green, and flourishing,
the plants are little rockets of success
going off every time you look at them.

Glass murrini headpins from Jennifer Cameron of Glass Addictions









 

 
 

Thank you to Miss Jennifer Cameron of Glass Addictions for the honor of working with her amazing murrini glass headpins for the Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month challenge. The colors are so beautiful in these tiny little worlds filled with swirls of glass, all I did was pull the same colors onto the paint effects on the metal leaves and components I layered in this bracelet called "Bursting Forth." A garden party for your wrist! Aren't you excited for spring to finally come?

Have to confess, when I see your name on a challenge, I usually choose to see yours last. But I couldn't resist this time, and boy, that is a gorgeous bracelet! I could gush on and on, but I will...practice...restraint...:)
