Special Saturday Sequin Post!

 I have a great project to share with you today!  
Sarah from Saturday Sequins invited me to participate in her first ever blog hop.
I could not resist.  I do love sequins!
 My sequin pallet was inspired by this paint theme in Better Homes and Garden magazine 
called "Passage to India."  
Aren't these colours fab?  
AND, I had all the sequin colours to match!
 Two of my bezels feature sequins under resin.  I used Jewelry Resin, which is perfect for shallow pours.  I glued my other sequins into their bezel homes.
 Assembling my necklace was a joy.  The colours made me very happy.
 I can't decide if I like the sequins glued or under resin best.
 Each bezel is fun.
 The finished necklace is a sequin show stopper!
I am going to spend some time today checking out my fellow sequin fans!
Thank you for inviting me Sarah!

  1. Wow, look at that!!! It's beautiful -- I'm so impressed. I like the sequins both ways, I think. They look beautiful and dramatic on the same necklace.

    Thanks for participating! I might have another hop in April, and if I do, you're more than welcome to join us for that one, too. <3

  4. Wow, this takes bling to a whole new level! Personally, I like the resin-y components best, but I'm crazy for resin at the moment, so maybe that is influencing me a bit. Just wild and spangly and wonderful!

  10. Fun! Love your inspiration photo and seeing how you translated the colors in your piece. The finished design has a definite "Passage to India" flavor.

  11. Lovely pendants! A somewhat unusual and creative use of sequins in jewellery.

    I have a few sequins with colour that easily rubs off and encasing them in resin would probably be a great way to use them without having to worry about losing the colour.

  12. I'm so glad you participated Carmi! I love what you do with resin, and resin and sequins looks like a win-win to me. I really love the ones under resin. Awesome job!

  14. I really like that you did some with resin and some without. It really gives the piece some texture. The whole design is so full of whimsy. I love the way you combined the chains. That green chain is really eye-catching! Wonderful job :)

  16. Sharing your process was fantastic; gracias! "Passage to India" is rich, wonderful, vibrant art jewelry! And your empowering art jewelry blog is incredible too.

    I appreciate learning the resin you recommend for shallow bezels, and find both styles of sequin focals dazzling in beauty! Gorgeous necklace!

    namaste,
    Rita

  17. I love what you have done.. I can not decided whether I love the sequins in the resin or glued.. They both look GREAT.

  21. Carmi, I love your necklace. First the colors you paired together are so happy! I also like how you used sequins in two different ways. Great for reflecting light and sparkle as well as adding dimension!

    Still hopping and so glad I popped over to your blog first thing this morning! Have a fabulous day!
    {Hugs!}
