Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month Reveal

Summer! Thats the theme of this months AJE CoM! AND we got to pick our own components!
Here's some wild strawberries that grow along my fence, when they ripen I know summer has arrived.

I knew right away I would use my strawberry Jade Scott (retired) pendant. I wanted to portray the ripe and unripe berries, the little white flowers and the vines the they grow on. So I made a necklace with red leather and green linen. I found a Julie Miller Glass green glass bead and a Bo Hulley red ceramic bead. The white flowers are czech glass.

The red glass bead was from a destash event and I can't remember the artist.

Here's a picture of my bike. THIS means summer to me! I need to get back in shape and start riding again! But, then when will I bead? Decisions.

How about this cutie bike bracelet bar by Suzie Q Beads! There is the faintest green in the glaze that reminded me of my bike.

Thanks everyone at Art Jewelry Elements for inviting any one to play this month! 
Check out the reveal on the blog Art Jewelry Elements.
Give everyone some blog love!!
