Week four of completing an unfinished piece from my work space. We have had frigid temperatures and snow here so I decided to use the bee! Nothing says summer more than bees buzzing around the beautiful flowers.
For the bee piece:
1.I stamped a honeycomb design into a piece of raw brass.
2. I then colored some Ice Resin to mimic honey and added the resin to the wells in the honeycomb design.
3. After the resin cured I cut the piece out ( but I think next time I will cut the pieces of brass and then add the resin.
4. Riveted the bee onto the honey comb base. The bee was raw brass which I colored using acrylic paints.
5. Used various vintage and new beads to complete the necklace.
This was a fun necklace to make! Now to keep going for week five!
See what I come up with!
