It's been a little while since I designed specifically for the Artisans Create Together Color Inspiration Challenge. And with the crazy February I had, I didn't quite make the deadline. Since I had already pulled together the beads to make something it only made sense to finish and share. Better late than never, right?
I remembered that I had a pink and cream colored pendant from one of my insane Bead & Button Shopping sprees with Golem Design Studio. I sometimes overlook this collection of pendants, but now was the perfect time to work with one! I gathered a collection of Czech glass in pinks, cream, and silvery grey (I'm such a sucker for that Mercury Glass finish!) and some peach moonstone star cut beads that were a nice match to the peachy-pinks of the pendant. I had originally thought I'd use some of my rose quartz stash but it was too pink of a pink... if that makes sense! Anyways, here is what I came up with and finally pulled together last night.
I didn't make this next one specifically for this challenge but wanted to share it anyway. It was published in the Summer 2016 issue of Stringing Magazine and remains a design that I'm super proud of making. It features a lovely polymer clay poppy pendant from Humblebeads, faceted sapphire and sunstone beads, and a luscious length of salmon sari silk.
Now I'd better get started on the March palette before another month slips away from me!!
