It’s been a while since I joined in with Shannon’s Finally Friday challenge. All the palettes from Design Seeds seem to be so inspiring – so as I’ve said before, I love that Shannon picks ONE to work from otherwise I’d be lost on that site for hours and hours! Self-confessed blue girl that I am, there was no way I’d let this week’s selection get away
Here it is: door tones
I would love to walk through that door, but I’ll have to settle for it just entertaining my muse. I had already created this “shutter” focal for a previous challenge and other coordinating beads. They had sat in the same dish for these last months waiting to become something. I thought of them as soon as I saw this palette.
Here is my interpretation
When I made those little cylinder beads with two holes I wasn’t quite sure how I would use them. I work like this all the time creating different shapes and hole positions with no clue if it could be wearable. Most of these experiments are just a product of squishing polymer and saying what if? I think this time though this works for me. I don’t know what on earth to call them, they feel a little like ladder rungs in this necklace. Rounding out the handmade by me polymer in this piece are the small rondelles then I’ve added Chalcedony, ebony wood, and a whole bunch of seeds. It ended up quite long, but light as a feather.
Please pardon the lint and gas meter – it was starting to rain so I was taking cover and hurrying. I just thought it looked a lot better on. Someday I’ll get the swing of taking nice pictures of necklaces, sigh.
