Jade Scott Flower Challenge


I was one of the 7 lucky winners of Lorelei's giveaway for a Jade Scott flower headpin! All I had to do was create something with it and share it in a blog hop...not a bad deal at all! I used the awesome turquoise enameled flower headpin that I received to make a simple, but cute necklace.



I attached the flower headpin to a brass filigree flower shape, then wire wrapped an enameled filigree bead by yours truly! I attached it to copper chain and added a copper clasp. Simple, but easy to wear!


I enameled the robin's egg blue bead using Barbara Lewis' Torch Fired Enamel kit...not bad for a first time attempt! I practiced the technique with Barbara Bechtel and Shannon LeVart...if it weren't for them, I might not have ever mustered up the courage!


I have a few enameled flower headpins from Jade Scott that I have been hoarding, so I decided to use one to also make a ring. Lorelei made a ring with one, and I think they are ideal for a ring. I simply wired the flower headpin to a ring blank.




Check out the rest of the participants in the Jade Scott Flower Challenge blog hop!

Lisa, Love your work with the enameled flower! I bought one to participate in the challenge too and I can see why you would hoard them. They are so beautiful. I love your ring too, so cute!

I love your beautiful necklace. Sometimes simple is better--you can wear it with anything.

I would so love to learn the art of torch-fired enamel. Someday....

Have a wonderful Monday!
