I LOVE Tarina Tarantino jewelry, but being the poor DIY artist that I am... I can't afford anything of hers! I found this awesometastic cameo necklace on her site which I could kill for... but it's $363!  Shocked Shocked Shocked

So... I decided to make my own. Now, it isn't as awesome as Tarina's... but I'm quite proud of it. =D

Picture time!  Grin



I looked all over the place for a hot pink cameo and could not find one. I found this green one at Michael's and decided it would do.



I rarely make beaded necklaces... but I've discovered how fun it is! Although, I did get beads all over my table.  Angry



So what do you think? Oh! Here's the inspiration:



I will try and get an action shot later. =D

*****

Yay! I made another one, today. =D I think I like this one even more.  Grin

Thanks everyone!

I actually already had most of them. I've been making jewelry for years now so I've built up quite a collection of charms. I wish mine was as bright as the inspiration, but I'm happy with it anyway.  Grin I bought a black cameo today so I'm hoping to make one similar to her black and white version of this necklace.

I really like your piece! I love the fact that you have symetry but then there's the one charm that's just there which makes it yours! I'm not familiar with the inspiration piece but I like yours better! AWESOME!!
