Today marks the middle of my 30 day challenge! I gather a lot of my inspiration from my walk to the studio, checking out the gardens and parks and staring at the sky, this usually gives me the colours I feel like playing with. Then I look over my notebooks and sketches and find a design I want to try out. Well, today, on May 15, it snowed. SNOWED!!! So I played with my snow queen beads. The design is one I’ve had in mind for a while. I love the shape of my crystal beads. Each one is hand faceted for visual appeal and sparkle. The challenge here was to make something so simple as clear glass into something extra special. And the focal snow queen bead? Gorgeous if I do say so myself. Together this necklace is absolutely stunning. So glad the design finally made it off a page and into life.
