weekly challenge - mystique

aha! i'm in luck :) i finished an adornment this morning and it fits perfectly to inspiration avenue's weekly challenge this week ... "mystique" ...

here's another addition to my bohemian gothika collection :) (ooo... btw, both my gothika pendants have been sold!! woopee!!)

meet aishe adara ...

gothic jewelry a child of the land ... aishe adara is a gothic gypsy ... traveling from place to place, the world is her home.

gothic jewelryadorn in shiny beads, rustic wires, leather cords and vintage chains ...

gothic jewelry yet constantly shrouded in mystery ...

essentially an asymmetric choker, you can wear it straight or i prefer it a little lopsided :) the focal bead is polymer clay, imprinted and painted, then wrapped in a beautifully detailed filigree. the wires are actually aluminum, so it's really light, but hammered to make it sturdier. however it is still shapable so that you can shape it according to your neckline.

well, i think this cuts it for "mystique" week :) i'm gonna call it a night ... it's 4am and i think i'll go to bed now ... so i'll list this in my etsy tomorrow :)

happy pimping! :)
