Our theme for this week for the Year of Jewelry was Organically Yours. I stink at free-form business, so I decided to take the organic theme literally. My dad made some antler buttons and some antler tip pendants for me a while back and I thought this would be the perfect project for them. I painted a couple of lines on the pendant to add some color and interest, and then I sanded most of it back off to keep it looking weathered and rustic.
I wanted just a little more color, so I added a cool recycled glass bead from Ghana. I love the imperfections in the glass.
My usual nylon cord just didn't seem right for this project, so I dug deep and pulled out some hemp. It just isn't consistent enough for fussy micro macrame pieces, but it's exactly what this piece needed.
Oh, and those two beads in that last photo? Bone. Then one of Dad's buttons for a closure to finish it off.
And there you have it: Organically Yours.
