I'm a little ahead of the game out of pure luck I suppose. The prompt this week for the Year of Jewelry Project is GRACE.
"Grace" really has a lot of meanings, interpretations, and definitions and I definitely won't get into all of those. I do have to say that what I saw on the football field last night by the Alabama Crimson Tide was indeed grace. Their skill and ability, the ease at which they played, and their general sportsmanship (with a few exceptions) exuded grace. Roll Tide for sure y'all!
Interestingly, a few days ago (before I ever saw what this week's prompt would be) I listed this necklace in my shop. It's name? Grace.
Don't you find it kind of funny that the the only beads of color I placed on that necklace are crimson in hue and that there's a chandelier crystal in it (the BCS Championship trophy is a crystal football)? I know I'm reading to much into this. I do tend to over-analyze things.
In any case, this is my submission for Grace. Head over to this week's album to see how other designers interpreted the prompt.
I also HAVE to share this picture of the pendant I won from Therese at Therese's Treasures. I received it in the mail yesterday, and it must have been a sign of good luck as Therese lives in Alabama too!
