March design challenge: Fresh Inspriartion

Fresh Inspriartion can be anything you interpret. Do you have some new beads you have been dying to use? How about a new technique or some colorful Spring combos sure to inspire? The possibilities are endless! Create your Fresh Inspriartion designs and have them posted by March 14. We can all use some fresh ideas every now and then so this should be a great opportunity for us to share our newest designs.
I can not wait to see how everyone interprets this challenge!


Hawaiian Breeze

I find everything about making jewelry fun. My favorite materials to work with are lampworked glass, natural stones, silver, and Vintaj Natural Brass. I have just started my shop at Etsy and am working to get photographs uploaded there.

When I discovered lampworked beads by Grace, I fell in love with her work and style. I was so excited to see that my next discovery, Vintaj Natural Brass, works so well with these beautiful beads. As a matter of fact, a beautiful lampworked bead begs to be paired with brass filigree and rustic looking chains. The contrast is stunning!

I let each bead talk to me telling me about how it would like to be dressed up. For example Hawaiian Breeze has been begging me to let it go to Hawaii. Who knows perhaps someday it will. The turtle and turquoise crystals are reminiscent of the snorkling cites on many of the Hawaiian beaches.


Filigree and Brass

What a combination! All I can think about when I am creating is romance and romantic jewelry, I get those feelings of frill and being girlie when I look at my supplies from Vintaj Natural Brass.I just get this feeling of love and beauty as I start to create. I love creating with them I know that what ever I make it is going to be romantic and I am going to love it.
