I chose Fiona Gallagher from the series Shameless as my muse for this challenge. She typically wears delicate minimal jewelry and the dark teardrop fits her emotionally self destructive lifestyle.
I decided instead of playing "Let's Pretend, that I would play, "Let's Get Real". That's because my future daughter-in-law is in the film industry. She's a petite one and likes to wear petite jewelry. This was a challenge for me. I decided to make a necklace with a starfish that I pounded out from a die (that was a challenge !) and string a set of tiny pearls. The back of the pendant has been imprinted with the husk of a tomatillo which resembles a bees wing. So, i give you this quote from a Richard Thompson song...."She was a rare thing, fine as a bees wing." Introducing the mother of my very chubby little grandson, Jewel Staite.
The May challenge is:
"A Day in the Sun"
