This week on Iron Craft Challenge we were challenged to create a piece worthy of the state fair. There were many categories to choose from; some expected and some crazy. I was drawn to one called "Bee and Honey Art." I've always been a fan of honeybees for their awesome behavior, so this seemed like the perfect chance.
Several months ago, I was experimenting with my soldering iron and created a little piece made from hexagonal washers. I hadn't done anything with it yet, so now was the time. I thought it looked a bit like a honeycomb, so I spray-painted it gold and called it a necklace.
I didn't have any metal findings that I thought went well with the color, so I used some red suede cord.
