Unfortunately I have a house full of sick children, so I was unable to participate in this week's 'My Creative Space' over at Kirsty's blog. Rest assured I am working on many new pieces (when I'm not busy wiping runny noses or giving cuddles or watching Mickey Mouse reruns over and over and over....). There will be lots to see soon, promise!
But this is what I can show you. Last Thursday's 'My Creative Space' was a peek at a custom order for a freeform bracelet in shades of white, emerald, aquamarine and sapphire. Well, she is finished...and I have named her 'Song of the Seasons'.
The colours each represent a birthstone colour...aquamarine for March, emerald for May, pearl for June, and sapphire for September...
It was such a joy to create this bracelet, the freeform flowed so easily.
For one who was once afraid of freeform, I am now an official convert thanks to Beverly Ash Gilbert and her inspiring book 'Beaded Colorways'. The book was a starting point for me to wander off on my own path of discovery, to develop my own style of freeform beadweaving and colour transitions.
Thanks for looking, and be well!
