I've been watching the one-a-week challenges inspired by Project Runway that Annie began over at the Imogene blog, and it's been really fun to see what folks have come up with. I've never really been one to jump on the bandwagon for challenges and projects like this, but I'm really delighted by the idea that Alisa came up with for this week.

It's right up my alley, yet gives me some space to play and let me goof around with some more conceptual art jewelry than I do on a day-to-day basis.
So, this is what I've got so far...
Eucalyptus branches wrapped into a sort of wreath shape with a sterling silver neckwire hidden underneath for shape and a way to clasp it at the back. It's not done, and I really want to incorporate flowers or something else. But, since I was up late last night working on it, I thought I'd post photos of its current state.
