Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge: Day 18...
The prompt for Day 18 of the Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge was to break out the Vintaj and form some filigree!
We had a Canadian jade cabochon in the shop and it fit perfectly in the design of the filigree. I decided to form the filigree around the cabochon to create the focal. To me, most filigree has such a vintage feel to it. (Probably because a lot of the designs come from vintage stampings.) With that in mind, I used vintage Japanese glass beads in a striking green to compliment the focal. The greens are perfect for this time of year. I think the finished piece has an heirloom quality to it and I like it.
