I took a break from the Jello to make this Fabulous Felt Spring Flowers Barrette and nameless necklace to wear for Easter. (As always, I made two barrettes, one to wear and one to sell. Although I've said it before, it bears repeating that I don't wear the hair accessories I post in my shop. Just in case you were cringing :) I saw these metal and ceramic floral pendants in Michael's and instantly knew that I wanted to use three of them to make a big statement necklace. Doing so was a little trickier than usual because I needed to connect the pendants daisy-chain style with three separate sections of wrapped wire. It wasn't too difficult, though, and I look forward to making similar necklaces in the future.
Easter turned out to be gorgeous, so I decided to go old school and do a self portrait. It's funny, but I've gotten so used to the close-up, arty quality of the mannequin (er, Tammy the Torso) shots that I now prefer them to the ones of myself (at least for the purposes of this blog). Life in plastic, it's fantastic. Maybe those "Barbie Girl" lyrics were on to something :)
