Delight Me! The Jade Dog Challenge

To recap ... artist friend Christi asked me to join the Spring challenge posted by Darcy Horn of The Jade Dog and I received my bag of mandatory goodies ...

Initially I thought I would make an assemblage but when I got out the sketchbook, this is what happened...

But first I had to get the polymer cab and those rudraksha beads to a more harmonious colour palette. I'm sure there is a rule NOT to alter the bead colour but hey! I'm an artist and if  something doesn't work I throw paint on it!

Lots of niggly bits. The skull needed something more solid so I fashioned a small bezel and filled with Diamond Glaze, plopping the skull on for good measure.

Drilling, wiring, figuring out crimping (my DD had all the beading tools and how-to books!). More drilling, gluing, a tooth here, a bone there and voila ...  I present "Delight Me! A necklace".
