The Design Challenge:
Feel free to create in any way you wish, using your bead as inspiration for your colorway, theme, technique. You are welcome to use additional Color of Dreams beads in your design, as well as artisan beads and gems and anything you like. You are not limited to jewelry.
You may share a dream that has come true, one you are working on now, or one you hope for in the future. The one goal of the hop: we'll focus on our dreams as entirely possible, with the idea, "If we can dream it, we can achieve it." So, try creating "from the end" -- as if your dream has already come true -- using your jewelry design to do so.
When my bead arrived....we sat and looked at each other for a while...then some more....then again....I turned it all kinds of way...but the one thing that stood out to me what that the colors looked like flower petals....Soooooo I tried again and again to get a flower out of that bead...no go....finally.....we started to get in tune with each other....petals...flowers...garden...gardener.......GARDEN FAIRY!!!!
Finally, I didn't think we would make it....but ta da...below is my garden fairy. She is strung on green cotton cord to look like a vine with some purple flowers and green leaves. The chain that hangs as her skirt, represents the flower petals and the yellow beads in the middle the stamens. She is wearing a purple flower shawl, and a yellow flower hat with a crown....I have already tried her out and she was the hit of the party.
I couldn't be happier with the bead I got!!!! Can you find her in the picture above?????
To see what the rest of the group received and created hop over to Jewel School Friends and check them out....Thanks for looking.
