Today's design is visiting how my jewelry ideas begin ~
I've been playing with patina's this month.
Stop by my post on Earrings Everyday Blog ~ for these featured earrings!
I've been working towards new color combinations that will be unique to my designs ~
I had my husband put together some etching for me to practice on.
This is a blue patina with iridescent highlights ~
(sorry but the highlights are really hard to see here)
These were inspired by this piece I made the day before ~
When I put it out to some online friends, they thought this could be used as a hair clip or bracelet focal
Riveting this piece to a cuff base or adding fun beads and links would be fun!
I think I'll make one long piece to wire on each end of my comb~
with out the dangles...but I think they would work too!
Another friend thought it would be fun for for a book focal ~
I thought it would also make a terrific necklace for Spring!
Maybe with some sparkly beads too!
So for me this is how ideas are born....
I love suggestions and thinking out of the box~
My favorite question...where can I take this?
And making it happen....many times my ideas don't work out...
Very often those mistakes turn into my best pieces!
So don't put off trying out new things...
who knows where you'll end up!
