A few weeks ago the Talented JADE SCOTT, sent out pinwheels to 7 participants. Today you will get to see the outcome of what those pinwheels grew up to be! Everyone is working with a different color, enameled copper pinwheel connector with a hole on each end. This creates versatility and I can't wait to see the unique pieces everyone created!
First up, moi!
I was stumped for a little while, not knowing if I wanted to create a bracelet or a necklace. I received a robin's egg blue pinwheel and as I was looking around my stash, noticed this bright kazuri lentil and decided to play off the colors in that. I brought out all the purple and and teal beads I could find and eventually ended up with a few art beads, some stones, some copper chain and matte purple peanut shaped seed beads.
I assembled the beads with the pinwheel first at one side. I strung all the seed beads and other beads on 2 strands of beading wire so that I could have a chunkier look in between the beads, but also so that I could weave the 2 strands through the purple enameled C Koop Beads ring (below the pinwheel).
Some lovely ceramic beads from Elaine Ray seem to work perfectly with the whimsical nature of my necklace. I also added a ceramic house bead from Jubilee, and some lampwork glass from Sue Beads.
Overall I am happy with the outcome! This will land in my etsy store sometime today. I know someone will love it's happy-go-lucky nature!
