Obstacles, an ABS entry, and a piece of drift wood
Mmmmm. linen cord, yum!
Ok, look what I have to deal with! I'm not making this stuff up. Marley has been especially clingy since we got back from our trip.
It's safe to say that I'm back! I spent a few days thinking things over and trying to wrap my head around something specific. It felt hard to get back into it but I'm back. And I'm happy with the outcome of some pieces I finished last night. Below, is a necklace inspired by my trip to Plum Island. Oh and that piece of driftwood? I found that on the beach! I love photo props lately and what better way to remember my trip!!
This necklace celebrates many different bead artisans- at the forefront is a ceramic sand dollar from Erin Siegel. There is a lampwork flower from Gardanne beads, a ceramic round from Keith O'Connor, an olive green lampwork spacer from Studiorent, a coral lampwork round from The Orange Bell, a ceramic House bead from Jubilee, a lampwork disc that is hard to see in this pic from Loupiac, a drilled stone from Stones Studio Too. I used some etched cable chain from AD Adornments, and some silk cording from Ornamentea, and created my own steel wire hook clasp.
And finally my ABS entry. I quite like how it turned out.
I hope it gets good response. I wasn't sure how to
portray the painting without all the bulls and horses, but
I think sticking to a rustic color palette, I've captured
the feeling of the painting.
