TTIC Make-Up Week

Hey everybody! Because of the Holiday, TTIC is taking a break from releasing a new challenge this week. Instead, it’s going to be a catch up week, which is great because there are definitely some challenges I wanted to do but couldn’t for one reason or another. So, I decided to use Beth’s Challenge from May 26th: Favorite New Moon Quote. Click on the title to check out the original posting. Here’s the quote I chose:

“Before you, Bella, my life was alike a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars- points of light and reason. …And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly, everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. “ -New Moon pg. 514

And here’s my project.

I have been on a mega jewelry kick lately, and all I wanna do is make necklaces, so I thought that I could translate my quote into a piece of wearable homage to Twilight. I used a beautiful piece of dichroic glass for my interpretation of Bella as the meteor. The starlight sky is the glimmering eyelash yarn. There are actually sheer, shiny threads throughout the yarn. It always reminded me of a shimmering night sky. I then added a couple of iridescent beads and 2 stars (one of which is a warm butterscotch color…for Edward’s eyes!) I made the beads hang asymmetrically, ‘cause that’s what I prefer in general. I think that the materials accurately depicts what Edward is saying in this lovely paragraph. The dichroic pendant really is the fire, and brilliancy of the piece. But I think the use of the eyelash yarn adds a bit of whimsy to the piece as well.

I’m really glad I got to create something from one of the past challenges. There’s still more I want to tackle, we’ll just have to see what kind of time I have. Now it’s your turn! Go to www.twilighttuesday.com to participate in this make-up week! Pick any of the past challenges and have fun!!! Make sure you comment on the blog so that we can all visit your blog and see what you’ve created. Until next time, spread the Twilight love!
