Art Elements Theme of the Month :: Blue


The September Art Elements Theme of the Month is much more wide open than usual... it's all about the color blue!  

I knew that it was finally time to stop hoarding my pair of gorgeous blue jay feather charms from Artisticaos.  What challenge could be more perfect??  At first I thought I'd be able to pair the porcelain feathers wth some new dark blue moonglow lucite... but the two things were just fighting each other too much.  I had to come up with something else lightweight.  A lovely pair of dark blue and grey streaked polymer clay rounds from Humblebeads ended up being just the thing to complete the design.

I had already made up the little moonglow lucite links so I was determined to find something in my stash to pair with them.  Luckily, I had some pretty charms from Golem Design Studio that fit the bill!  (If you aren't familiar with Golem, their ceramic beads and pendants are all carved and glazed by hand.  Amazing!)  

Lastly, a piece that I shared in progress last month for the Mandala theme... but it certainly fits the blue theme perfectly as well!  So here it is all done!  The beautiful cobalt cab is by Jenny Davies-Reazor.  This piece got a little too big for me to be a pendant... so I added a pin back to make it a brooch.

Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to.  I hope you like my little foray into the color blue this month.    


  1. These pieces are gorgeous. Those first feather earrings are stunning. Really some of the prettiest earrings I've ever seen. I'm also loving the pins you are making. Really fun!

  2. Love your blue creations! I had SO wanted to create for both this challenge and your Honey Do List, but the hurricane recovery meant that my time was consumed. I hate that I couldn't join in, but love that I still get to be inspired by your beautiful makes!
