I bought a new dress from work that I thought would be useful for a few things coming up, one of which was the swing dance at the Masonic Temple with my dad this past Saturday. I decided to make a pair of polka dot earrings to match the dress....
In preparation for May 4th's My Arts Night Out in Old Town I've been working on some pieces that are Michigan-inspired and came about from a quick chat with Rhea, the owner of Old Town General Store. She suggested some pieces with cherries on them (a popular product of Michigan) and I jumped at the idea.
I usually don't work much in red, but I am LOVING this set I just finished. I have another wide bangle idea also in the works. Certainly come by Old Town in May and see these pieces (or just say hi and peruse Rhea's awesome General Store!)
This Ginkgo Leaf Bangle came about in some planning for My Arts night Out with Rhea at Old Town General Store. I've been thinking that making some pieces specially for this event would break me out of the more basic designs I've been doing. So I asked Rhea what her favorite plants were and Ginkgo was the first one she said without skipping a beat.
With shows coming up, I've been wanting a good fill for my tiny bangle stands, so any beads that are sitting in my travel trays are game to be stitched into my layering pieces. I've finished a number of them recently.
