Earlier this week, I posted my first Autumn piece that I made with my gorgeous beads from Artbeads.com (you can see that post here). Today, I finished my second Autumn piece and combined it with this week's "Creative Sparks Fridays" project.
This week's sparks are:
And here are my interpretations of them:
"Wing And A Prayer"
I was immediately drawn to the graphic pattern in the moth's wings, punctuated with that vivid splash of red, and I knew I wanted to attempt to duplicate that feel in my pieces.
In my Artbeads.com package, I received some beautiful Iron Zebra Jasper beads that have the striking graphic patterns I was looking for. Using antiqued sterling wire, I combined those beads with 10mm carved wooden beads, a warm-toned 30mm wood ring and a striking tomato-red magnesite coin to create the effect I loved in the *spark* picture.
The necklace measures approximately 21.5", with the wooden ring hanging in front. This allows the red to hang off-center, much like the streak of red in the picture.
These pieces will be available for purchase in my etsy shop.
As always, I really enjoyed working on this Creative *spark* Fridays project, and want to thank Becky of The Gritty Bird for all her work in hosting this weekly challenge.
Happy creating and have a fantastic weekend!
