Pirate Queen...

I'm so very pleased with the new bronze clay coins. They turned out GREAT! I made this necklace over my morning coffee. Azalea helped me. She cut the wire and in turn showed her baby dolls how to cut the wire. I wanted to make a necklace befitting a pirate queen. It's made up luscious pearls and red tiger eye from Talisman Associates, ceramic beads from Keith O'Connor, natural brass chain from Vintaj, copper chain from Ornamentea, siam Swarovski crystals from Fusion Beads, and the seashell clasp, shibuichi key, and new bronze coin from my family here at Green Girl Studios.

Gorgeous! I love the colors- the burgundy with the copper is stunning. The pendant is super! Will GGS be selling these at all? How can get I get my hands on one!??! :)
You always make the coolest stuff.

I freaking love this! The colors, the textures - the coin and key - I'll stop now before my head explodes.

Very cool - I love it! I agree with Lorelei - I would love to buy a skull coin (and maybe others). Will they be offered? :-)

Oh, this gorgeous necklace just makes me want to say, "Yarr!"

It's only a -wee- bit late for National Talk Like A Pirate Day (the 19th), but its exquisite beauty makes up for its late arrival. ;)

Thanks everyone for you kind words!

I'm not sure if they'll be offered online or not. Limited run items like PMC, shrinky-dink pendants, Cynthia's polymer and resin portraits, and the bronze clay pressings are hard to keep on the shelf for online sales. We usually only make a handful of special edition items for the in person shows. We've got several coming up shortly, so you might catch us at one of those. If by chance you're not able to come, either leave me a comment with your email address or email me directly to ardenttie@yahoo.com and I'll see what we can do.

Ha ha ha... Amanda... I don't think I'd be able to keep up the ruse of talking like a pirate all day unless I was saturated pretty heavily with rum!

OH! I forgot to mention - the great thing about this necklace is that it converts back and forth from a single strand long necklace with a cute "bowtie" clasp action in the front, to a short double-stranded piece that clasps in the back.

The way that it's strung allows for it to be worn either way with balances and counter-balances, so you don't have to worry about accidentally choking yourself either!
