Snowflake Bead Challenge Part 2


 I made a second piece for the challenge.  The first piece I made, in the  previous post, was influenced by the winter weather of Michigan, using cool colors.  My second piece was influenced by the warm weather and colors of Arizona.  I unexpectedly spent some time there after my mother fell while hiking and broke her knee cap.  After surgery and a short stay in a skilled care facility, I went to help her transition to home.

This pendant is inspired by a class I took with my friend Barb Klann, based on using mixed metals and a beaded bail.  These colors are probably my favorite, lime green and turquoise.  I incorporated some of the beads in the challenge with additional Czech firepolish and some metal pieces.




A close up of the main section above.


 The beautiful porcelain bead hangs at the bottom of the pendant.

I really like this mix of beads with the brighter colors. Isn't it interesting how our environment influences our designs?

Thanks for sharing both of your pieces! It's amazing to see how different pieces can be even by the same artist.

I'll just leave a comment on this post....the necklace is very pretty, Your craftsmanship is awesome. I was scrolling down to tell you so, then saw post #2. How unexpected! I love your color mix, with the lime green. So fresh feeling! Great job.

Mary Hicks said...

Your work is exquisite. I love the necklace for its sleek, cool, wintry feel. I love the dangle's color, they are subtly dramatic, and your style is very cool.

Susan, your pendant is very pretty! I like how you combined lime green, turquoise, brown and gold with the snowflake charm and the other beads from the kit, they all go very well with each other.

I love both designs but the "Arizona" piece is truly a little work of art! :-)

Hope your mother is feeling much better!
