I wasn't sure that I'd have time to make anything this month with some serious travel on the August docket, but I managed to squeeze in a little creating time in between gathering essentials, doing laundry, and deciding what to pack for a 16 day trip. I have to admit that I looked for circle-inspired beads first and then looked to see if they worked with any of the Spoonflower designs.
First up, some I found some little corrugated, enameled circles from Blue Hare Art Wear that worked with the top right option. They are a little more red than in the design, but they do have an orange tinge to them. I used denim ??? and carnelian rounds with a little swirl of wire wrapped around the top beads for fun.
For my second pair, I grabbed some fine pewter charms from Green Girl Studios that have some great circle patterns all over them that reminded me of the mandala-esque patterns in the second from the left design on the bottom row. Once again, I chose only round beads to complement the charms... picking some aquamarine and very pale faceted rose quartz.
This is a blog hop... stop by the Earrings Everyday blog HERE to see what everyone else was inspired to make! To those of you participating, my apologies, but I probably won't be able to hop and comment until we get back from our trip!
