Gifts of Beauty

Mary Jane sent me some photos of a project she's working on, and she's used some of my components on the necklaces.

I just love when I get to see finished work using the pewter or glass, it's second-level creativity time for me.

Mary Jane is participating in Nancy Schindler's Book Club over at Round Rabbit. They're reading "The House At Riverton" and it sounds facinating, from the descriptions of the characters that Mary Jane sent me. She used some of the pewter, along with lots of other lovely things, to create necklaces inspired by the characters in the book. You can see more photos at her Flickr site and read the descriptions, too.

I love that she put a word onto the front of the toggle lock charm, and I told her that I'd been thinking of putting words onto the backs of some of the pewter components.

Must be a synchronicity thing! It's out there, available to inspire.

Don't you love these? I think the colors and ingenuity are wonderful.

And I really appreciate that she shared them with me, and gave me permission to share here, too.

Lovely, lovely.

I have a special fondness for Mary Jane's design. Her mix of fiber and metal fascinates me. Beautiful.
