Now I find myself living in the South, and you can see my recent escapades with bugs here. Besides continuing to hunt and collect and create with real bugs, I was excited for this challenge to get back to beading and make something with some of the fun components I've collected.
|Top row, L-R: Base metal charms and components, sterling and Thai silver, Peruvian ceramic. Middle row, L-R: vintage glass cabochons, vintage Chinese porcelain, Czech glass. Bottom row L-R: Czech glass, carved plaster, carved stone.|
|Left column, top down: pewter by GreenGirl, bronze by Cynthia Thornton and PMC by me, polymer clay (artist unknown), Joan Miller porcelain. Middle column, top down: laser cut wood by PorkChopShow and an unknown artist, stag beetle cab by Anthropologie (drawer pull with hardware cut off!). Right column, top down: Czech lampwork, zomBEES by our Laney, fairies by Dana Swisher, our Jenny Davies-Reazor.|
PorkChopShow (seriously I have an addiction). Originally I intended for this to be a necklace, but I didn't want to add that much - once the beadwork was done the piece just didn't want anything else! So I made a wall hanging instead - I mean, it's certainly large enough...
I hope you enjoyed my butterfly's metamorphosis this month! Please buzz along to see what everyone else has been inspired to create this month! I am off to do just that.
