Ooooh, spring is around the corner! Can you feel it?
Artbeads.com has presented our most excellent creative blogging team with showcasing the Beauty of Spring with their fantastic array of products! Spring is a beautiful season, full of rebirth, colour and sunlight, a wonderful and deserving muse for what we're about to produce!
So, it had me thinking - what is my favourite image of spring? What's the one thing I look forward to when I know spring is about to arrive? I walk to work almost every day, trying to stick to the scenic route (unless I'm running late, I've got a few shortcuts) along bikepaths and through parks. Lately with the balmy weather, I've traded in the heavy winter jacket with a lighter cropped cordouroy jacket, perfect for warmer weather. As I look about the park and through the bare trees, I see them - the small buds along the branches that will erupt into leafy greens and pink blossoms! That perfect pale green shines much brighter on a sunny day, and it makes me so anxious for picnics and bikerides and long hours outside. Green has always been a 'power colour' of mine, and I'm really excited to bring a 'green' collection!
The 'Green Awaits' collection focuses on these beautiful limited supply of Lemon Chrysophrase chips in a beautiful pale green. Their jagged, unique shapes give a beautiful image of how each leaf on a tree is different from the next. The premature buds, using Czech glass Bellflowers in Lemon Lime and fuschia glass rondelles add a little taste of what we'll expect to blossom and grow as we go deeper and deeper into the season and watch things grow! Inspirations of vines, trees and blossoms are evokes with the sterling silver and resin Summer Oak pendant in lime green and the curving separator bars. These pieces will be available for sale on my Etsy shop - well, maybe not everything quite yet. I think I'll need to show these off first!
