ABS Challenge for August

This is the inspiration for this Months ABS challenge
We were encouraged to stick close to the palate.
To use the bright red, purplish red, and dark yellow sparingly.
 I dug through my stash to see if I could play along
and this is what I came up with.
My art bead is a Kylie Parry Ceramic leaf.
Which echos the leaves in the painting.
I don't think the Unicorn bead counts as an art bead..
but it was a good time to use it.

Earrings Everyday- August Challenge

Amazing thread sculptures by the talented artist Gabriel Dawe.
Here is just one of the many images we had for 
our August Inspiration
The prism rainbow with string is brilliant! 
This is what I created....
Mimicking many of the colors.
Made my own ear wires this time.
Why not check out the other participants 
and see what they came up with for the
Earrings Everyday August Challenge.

Golem ~ Spring Garden

I went on a mad hunt for these Mustard beads. 
A friend of mine that had 
purchased a necklace but needed earring to match.

Vintage 1960s Hard Plastic Beads Orange Ovals and Mustard Yellow Round beads

Vintage Hard Plastic beads from the 1960's
Purchased form ETSY  owner - Wool Mountain Destash

The mustard beads came with these 
tangerine orange oval beads.
I had not choice. I had to get them.
The mustard beads were just too perfect for my friend.
I'll admit I'm not a big fan of the plastic
but they were Vintage. 
and I didn't have the heart to through them away.
So out of her stash into mine they went.

As it turned out the oranges were a perfect match
for these Spring Garden beads
by Golem Studios.
 I like the scale of the beads together.
I'm so glad I held onto them. 
They worked out nicely for this bracelet 
and earrings.
Definitely something to wear for 
Spring or Summer.
