Watercolor paper pendant for FALL

Hello everyone!
I hope you are all well and enjoying FALL.
I love this time of year!
We still have some hot days now and then,
but I sure enjoy those cooler ones when they come.

It's been awhile since I have posted.
I've been dealing with a frozen shoulder,
and blogging was the last thing on my mind.
On the mend and feeling better now.

Haven't done much in the way of art,
but did do a unique project recently.

I found Ross Barbera on You Tube.
He is a realistic painter,
but also creates beautiful jewelry.
It is watercolor paper jewelry.

Here is my pendant I just finished.

I love dragonflies,
so when I ran across the tiny bronze one,
I thought it made a nice touch to the pendant.

Well, keeping this post short...
hope to be posting more soon.

Let me hear from you.
I've missed you all!

Savor the Day!
Yvonne Quarles

I had that happen to my shoulder several yrs ago, and it still has twinges ... stretching really helped me .... and weights, believe it or not

I love the pendant! I'll have to look into that technique!

Hi Yvonne, I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder. I too have taken a break from blogging but now that I am looking at my blog friends posts I'm getting inspired! I love your pendant, I think I saw it on facebook!

So sorry to hear about your shoulder. When I first started my job at school working for the superintendent, I used the mouse connected to my computer so much that I had major pain in my right arm back through my shoulder blade and even down my leg from sitting all the time (I have scoliosis so anything that affects my lower back will radiate down my left leg). Thankfully, I got through all that and don't have it as much -- when my leg starts to tingle, I make sure I walk. Your pendant is so very pretty. Lovely idea for a necklace. Take care! Tammy
