Artist's date. Old bicycle necklace.
I went to my artist's date to Michaels this time. My first intention was to check some unfamiliar things - for the crafts I didn't yet have a chance to try. But all in vain! They have a surprisingly big bead department now so I ended up rummaging through all the treasures. I put parts and beads together enjoying mock designing. And then I saw a fantastic old bicycle pendant. I start thinking - if I put this and this together and make the pendant a focal point and finish it for selling... But wait a minute! It's my artist's date! I am not doing this for profit - just for nurturing my little artist inside! I should make this necklace for myself!
So I bought everything I thought would go well with the pendant. And the pendant itself, of course:)
The store was closed, I went home. And made this. And I love it! Will definitely wear it for the next artist's date.
