Spring is finally creeping into the Midwest. All the snow has melted and some flowers are beginning to emerge.
I cleared my workspace one evening, cleaned my tools and got creative.
The sunshine and longer days drew me into the studio several times and Iâ€™ve enjoyed shaping and embellishing the wire into my vision.
This wasnâ€™t always successful, as an attempt at triple hearts just didnâ€™t pan out, and a single heart became the final piece.
Since coiled wire takes some wrangling, I goofed around a bit too. Maybe tiaras will be a future line…
I matched an earcuff from the Renaissance Faire with my swirly pearls.
Bangles have been popular lately so I created a few of those.
There is something soothing about stringing beads. This one is a chakra bangle.
They’re fun to put on.
One birthstone bangle was sold, one is at Aurora Rose Boutique, and the third is for me to wear out for now.
Aylaâ€™s Bead Bazaar inspired me to incorporate Amazonite into a bracelet and collar set. Amazonite turns out to be a lovely, healing and positive stone.
It went straight to a trunk show I will post about next week.
Iâ€™m also feeling a love of springy colors.
Whatâ€™s your favorite piece?
