When I saw this month's inspiration painting
"Sacred Spring,Sweet Dreams " by Paul Gauguin
I thought I knew exactly what I'd make !
Lots of Big,Bright flowers...of course !!!
The vibrant colors of that painting are irresistible !
Perfect for some large Hibiscus shaped floral beads!
What else to add ???
I had some luscious sari silk ribbon in just the right shades of mango and papaya .
I remembered some great carved wooden beads hidden in my stash .They had a warm, natural tropical look.

had the PERFECT copper chain with a patina of lovely greens !!!
I started by making some tropical leaves to coordinate with that Beautiful length of chain.
I've never been to Tahiti. But,I frequently visit the Florida Keys.
While creating my leaves I dreamed of the lush green foliage , warm golden sunshine , soft cool breezes, graceful swaying palms.........prehaps a cool drink ......
enough daydreaming !
I laid out my components to decide how many flowers I would need....
The leaves and sari silk seemed to flutter in the breeze .
The design was by captured by trade winds in my imagine.
My necklace was already finished !!!!!
Forget the flowers!
Who is in charge here ???
Do I create my designs or do they create themselves!
Sometimes I wonder !!!
this week take a break from plans,sketches ,diagrams
be free to let a design grow in whatever direction it pleases
Bead Happy ,
