October Component of the Month Reveal

Time for the October Component of the Month REVEAL!!!
I'm so excited to have provided this cool Ammonite Component to everybody to make their creations!!

Here's what I made with mine!

I purposely chose the piece with the big crack in it,
I love it and think it adds to the personality of the texture.

I braided Sari Silk over heavy copper wire for the frame of the sides and used one of my rings for a sort of hook and eye closure.
I'm still toying with the idea of adding some little dangling baubles to this piece.
