Leaf Link Stem

Standard

IMG_4021I knew I wanted to do a second rendition of Red Rover using some silver chain.  Perusing the bead stash, I pulled out these bright spring-time greens.

Ok, it wasn’t so much a perusal as a massive dive amidst small plastic baggies of delicas, fending off playful paws with cries of “No!  You can’t have that!” whilst the Hellboys ran from the room, small plastic bags in mouth.

Gotta love those furbots.  They are ever so helpful.  Especially when I don’t want them to be.  All baggies (and the beads therein) were recovered unscathed, if a tad worse for toothy punctures.

The light green chain was all made by hand, using colored aluminum wire.  One hardens the wire so it keep it’s shape by pounding on it with a mallet.  Great for getting rid of frustrations, if a tad noisy.

The beading reminds me of leaves, the stem is the silver chain, all linked together with a touch of green.  It’s one of those forget-you-have-it-on pieces, light and bright.
