The first thing I made was a total no brainer for me. I had picked up some flower charms from Golem Design Studio at Bead & Button this year and one of them was perfect sunflower colors! I had already used one pair for last month's Honey Do List, so I already had a basic design/style in mind so there was no reason not to get to work! Since I was on a roll, I went ahead and whipped up earrings with the other two remaining colorways. I had lovely coordinating Humblebeads disks that were perfect for all three pairs (probably because I pretty much bought a set of every color that Heather Powers had at B&B!!).
Since I was still in painting mode trying to get some of my fan favorite designs finished for my next show that's approaching way too rapidly, I decided to add some paint to a few sunflower charms (or maybe some are really daisies) for a fun effect! The unpainted pair was a last minute addition when I realized that the Czech glass I had in mind didn't match the painted sunflowers. I had all the stuff out, so why not?
Lastly, I revisited my Golem collection... and this time fished out some fun polka dotted lentil beads. These are certainly my least literal interpretation, but I thought the colors were spot on for sunflowers.
So that's it for me this time. Check back with me on Monday, September 25th to see what other sunflower designs I come up with for the Honey Do List challenge. I hope you'll consider playing along with us!
