Steampunk Gothic Arch Necklace
This is for the open theme at Gothic Arches again I am a little slow this week. I am still having trouble with my teeth... it has been an ordeal because I have TMJ from a car accident so badly that is slows the amount of time the dentist can work in my mouth.... anyway enough excuses :)) This was hard for me because I have always been such a neat and clean solderer. For this I needed to muddy that up :)) I also aged it by adding a layer of mica for the top layer instead of glass. The back is glass and it has a layer of antique newspaper. I suppose it could be worn backwards but the rhinestone would be upside down. The little side oval pieces have antique tatted lace between glass. I used the free printable that I offered a while back so if you scroll down to past posts you can grab it.
