Works in Progress Week Four: Need Some Summer!

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!
