Blogger Non-Blogger Kuala Lumpar Reveal

Once again my friend Dini Bruinsma is Hostess for the Blogger Non Blogger Challenge. Dini has chosen a photo taken in her travels to Kuala Lumpur. Before this Challenge I had never heard of Kuala Lumpar. I now know that it is the capital of Malaysia and the most populous city in Malaysia. I enjoy these challenges for the inspiration they give but also for the challenge.  I find myself amongst Artist who have been creative for years and feel blessed to know them. In these challenges I feel like they give you room to grow, to learn and take your creativity too areas you may not have known about nor knew you had the ability to accomplish.
I always approach a Photo challenge looking for color as inspiration.  Here I pulled out brown, which in itself is always a challenge for me as I like bright and pastels. After completing my Necklace my son has told me, "no mom that's bronze not brown.  See, everything is left up too interpretation and the eye of the beholder.  Now I can't wait to see how the other participants have interpreted the color.  Lol.  Secondly orange, and in my stash I had some orange Jasper beads.(Recently acquired from the Gem show) Yellow quartz and yellow Swarovski crystals. I see a Sliver of Green reflection (Agate) and Silver White Lights (Pearls).  I found this Lovely coin Focal that I thought represented a lot of this photo so well.
Every bead or Gem I used received special treatment.  I didn't want any of the little darlings to feel left out. They were either capped, wrapped or caged and attached to a Link chain that I also hand made myself thanks to the illustrious reading and learning from Lori Anderson.


Every Necklace should have accessories like earrings or Bracelet or both. Lol, I'm just sayin,

Earrings are caged beads and bracelet is embelished head pins made of Jasper, Agate,seed beads, Pearls and Swarovski Crystals. The chain at the back of the Necklace was forged by joining single and double jump rings together making link chain.  Thank you so much for stopping by and taking this Journey with me.
