This month's inspiration is Illustration for American Cresent Cycles, 1899 by Frederick Winthrop Ramsdell
Gorgeous !!! I love those colors together !!!
While searching through my stash for elements that might work ,
I heard something calling my name!
What was it ?Funky little vintage copper chain fringes !
When I placed them on my copy of the poster, they just disappeared right into that fabulous hair .
They seemed made for this challenge !!!
I don't often make earrings . But, these seemed to make themselves !
The elements just fell into a collage of mixed metals and created a design for long glam dangles.
I seriously doubt any of my friends would identify long dangle earrings with me...LOL !
Wearing them made me feel like I was playing dress up .
I felt like I was a little girl trying on Mom's high heels.
I was just pretending I was a fancy grown up lady.
I imagined I was the woman in the poster,with long copper hair and skirts blowing in breeze.
I wouldn't have thought to created earrings like these for myself .
But , I'm very glad I did !!!
Just wearing these earrings lets me feel a bit different ,
maybe be a bit different ...just for a while.
Big girls should play dress up too !
We can step out of our usual daily persona and have some fun !
Just for a night , be a gypsy , a movie star ....whatever we please.
Sometimes all we have to do is change our jewelry to change the way we feel !!!
How GREAT is that !!!
instead of creating based on how you feel
design for how you want to feel !!!
Bead Happy !
