Thinking outside the Season

Most people can sit back and savor the season they are in. But, jewelry designers need to think ahead . I enjoy making beads for designers ,so I have to stay one step ahead of them !
Others may be thinking of deep winter colors ,warm wool,icy snow etc.
But ,I've moved on to pastels and warm sunshine !

Lately I've been enjoying making some jewelry for myself using Art Bead Scenes monthly inspiration paintings. A nice way to relax and refresh my clay creativity!
I LOVE the colors in this months pick"untitled "by Krasnr
But, what should I make???

something graphic , primitive ...even some how Wintry you say?
Did you forget? My brain has fast forwarded to spring !

This the fall I planted some spring bulbs in rich reds and many shades of blue.
I've been gazing out my kitchen window looking at brown shades of my garden mulch .
I've been dreaming about how the garden will look when the my new flowers burst into bloom.
Last week we had a light snow and my brown garden was laced with white.

The picture is the perfect inspiration for a necklace design I'll call
"Think Spring"
No matter what season you're in ...ENJOY !
Bead Happy , m.e. :)

  2. Hiya m.e, good to see you on my blog! :) How've you been doing? I see you've been creating some gorgeous new pieces! - Susmitha :)

  3. Greetings m.e.! Thanks for stopping by Treasures Found. I am very inspired by your interpretation of the ABS challenge. I would love to play along this month and hope I still have some time (I am always submitting something at the very last second!)
    Beautiful colors. And I agree that we have to be one step ahead. I am already dreaming of lighter colors and tropical drinks!
    Enjoy the day! Erin
