Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime is hosting the One Color Crayon Challenge and I decided to pick blue, it is my favorite color. I thought this would be easy and maybe I over thought the whole thing trying to stay in one color tone, I have a lot of blue beads!
I started many pieces took them apart, re-started and not sure I liked anything. While my camera battery charged this morning I decided to keep working and finished Shades of the Ocean, a lariat style necklace featuring beads from Starry Road Studios, HMB Studios and a mix of gemstones and crystals.
For the second piece, I went back to a favorite technique, wire crochet. A necklace or bracelet wire crocheted with a piece of sari silk to adjust the length as a necklace and wrap and tie as a bracelet.
I love it I just think I may add another strand or 2 to bulk it up.
Thanks Sally and I look forward to seeing what all the other artists created. Off to the garden on this beautiful day to add some color!!
