Miniature Bead Dress Pendants
Looking for a unique gift for yourself or someone lovely? :love: Look no further than these sweet dress pendants! We can customize it to the extent of our combined creativity.

An example of your selection could be as simple as "gold everything" or as varied as "white main, red large beads, orange hem, yellow buttons, green bust line, blue left sleeve, purple right sleeve"! I'm happy to work with you to make it just as you like.

Size: 1/2 inch waist, 1 1/2 inch tall, 1 1/2 inch wide

A simple lobster-clasp ribbon necklace is included, your choice of pink or black. I no longer make the wire hangers as seen in some of my gallery examples - they simply don't hold to my standards and are difficult for me to make.

I will need your mailing address to send you the finished product.

It seems a little counterproductive to link to offsite but! There's more photos, differing color placement, sample images, and even color swatches that I have readily available on Etsy:…

Monthly Feature Challenge: CULTURE

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 1, 2017, 7:05 AM

:bulletpink: This month was tough for me to really pin down. It starts with one of my college semesters: I was taking psychology of culture, communication between culture, comparative religion, and art history. I was entirely immersed with the differences and similarities between even one town to the next, with much of the material overlapping from class to class. In art history we covered from Pre-Historic to, I think it was, Gothic cathedrals. I'd have to go back and check my notes. But it bothered me, every section we covered, it was all Western art history. I asked my professor what the deal was and her answer was basically time restraints, we can't cover everything so we focus on Western history, and when I asked what class I needed to take to learn about Eastern art history she said the college didn't offer it (I did go to just a small community campus, so not super surprising).

I still feel like this section of my education is lacking. I want to know more! Surely there must be a detailed history about Russian artwork comparable to how the Greeks and Romans started influencing Egyptian art styles? I know there's something out there about the different Chinese dynasties and what defined which era!

So this month I'd love for you to share with me something with some cultural meaning, even better if you can tell me a bit about it. :heart:

Your challenge is:
  • Take your own craft and make something culturally relevant!
    • It doesn't have to be your culture~ though it is encouraged
    • La la la la It must be submitted to DA after this journal to count!
  • Link back to this journal in your description.
  • Comment here with a thumb/link so that I don't miss it.
  • Even if you aren't an artisan feel free to participate!
    • Yes!! Bring me drawings!! Bring me photos! Bring me stories! I don't care what your medium is. La la la la
At the end of the month I'll feature all your new diversity celebrating pieces in a new journal. :squee:
