After an October of my son's wedding, a freak snowstorm and cleanup and allergies from hell, I've finally had a chance to drag out my melting pot again. I'm supposed to be making gifts, but this set went straight into my jewelry box.

While in Arizona for my son's wedding, I stopped at a bead store and found some wonderful lucite flowers in all different styles and sizes. I used my trusty mold n pour to make molds of some of them. All the flowers on the necklace and earrings are UTEE. I used platinum UTEE and silver rub n buff to get the pewter effect. The flowers were then glued to silver filigree pieces I had and blinged up. Instead of stringing a beaded necklace, I went the chain route. The hardest thing about making necklaces with UTEE pieces is attempting to part with them.
