Creative Sparks Fridays (and Another Totally Twisted Design): Better Late Than Never!

I'm a bit late this week in posting my "Spark", but, as the title says, better late than never, right?

THE WEEK'S (8/20-8/27) SPARKS ARE-
**CREATIVE SPARK ONE**
•Artistic Theme•
A Summer Breeze
---------------------------------- 
**CREATIVE SPARK TWO**
•Theme Words or Phrase•
Breeze, Fresh Rain, Family, Flowers, Hammocks,
Picnics in the Grass, Icy Lemonade, Fresh Fruit
---------------------------------- 
**Creative SPARK THREE**
•Theme Color Palette•
---------------------------------- 
I absolutely LOVED this week's inspiration piece!  In fact, it is my favorite Friday "spark" so far!  The color combination is right up my alley, and I love the crazy patterns that all seem to go together seamlessly.  So here's my very eclectic necklace, which is also inspired by the design, "Delightful", from Kerry Bogert's book, Totally Twisted":

P8270004

The "crazy quilt" feeling of the inspiration piece led me to pull out brightly colored, patterned and textured beads and components.

P8270008

I ended up using six different colors of artistic coiled wire, and tried to stay within that color palette with my bead choices.

P8270011

Really, this has been one of my most favorite pieces that I've made in a long time, and it will be available in my etsy shop soon. 
 
So, there you have it - my weekly "Spark".  Take some time to go out to   The Gritty Bird, Becky Caldwell's blog, to see what other artists have done this week!

Molly! This is gorgeous. You are a girl of my own heart using all this color... I love color!

Simply lovely. It is wonderful how you pulled the design feel from the quilt!

Awesome.

Take Care and have a wonderful weekend. :)

I was going to do one but totally lost track of time. This is just not the time of year for me and deadlines!

Oh Molly, what a fun-necklace. Love the color-mix. You were more courageous than I was - I just worked with the green, blue and purple from the palette.

My mom needs to see this post. She was looking for that kind necklace for over a week now. She really wants to have a necklace with that kind of unique designs.
