I loved the Sanctuary Catalog that Cher produced in the early 90's. There were only 2 editions printed and I owned both. Wish I still had them. They're collector's items now. I was also inspired by the necklace tattoo she has (had?) on her left shoulder. I was going to throw together a version of it with bits and pieces I have strewn across my bench, but my muse demanded something just a little different.
Although I've been thinking about it all week, I didn't get started until 10:00 last night and just didn't remember to take step photos. It took me 4 tries to get that danged Faux Bone Maltese Cross right and I was tired! The front and back silver panels are cold connected with an Amethyst cabochon rivet head I wanted to use as a focal detail. You'll notice that there is only one rivet. For a secure join, you need to have at least two. Which means that there is a tiny bit of my favorite secret weapon in between them. "Jeweler's Cement" (the "G" word). Shhhhh.... Don't tell.
Alisa has great pics of both hers and Rachelle's pieces. I can't decide which I love better. They're both such wonderful abstract interpretations of Madonna's and Jackie O's styles. Now I'm wondering if mine is too direct. Humpf. There's a good possibility that this will be in my Etsy shop by the end of the week.
