I am hooked on copper, orange and blue right now - I can't get enuff!! Most of my designs seem to be taking that turn as well :)
I did these this morning before work. The glass is side drilled and they are a good size. I bought them because of the color and then became intimidated by their size. I ran across them while rummaging thru my pack and thought it was time to try and work them into a design.
One of the ways I get the free form ideas (altho i guess they wouldn't be free form at that point) is I lay the bead on a piece of paper and doodle around it. It allows me to find a 'flow' around the bead, and it also helps to give me a visual - or a reference while I am working.
I love this one - that blue is so bright - it looks like it is lit up! Is like a little blue lantern
All shades of blue!!!! Funky, chic, clunky design. I may have to keep this one.....
You know me and random :)
Have a great weekend kids - am gonna be a the market all weekend wish me luck!!!
