5 New Colours


Well they are not really new colours but new ways with old glazes. These are all pendants from that Victorian lock pattern I have. I never seem to find an end to the combination of patterns and pieces that can be taken from that lock. Now it seems there are endless ways of combining colours on the pieces. That lock is becoming somewhat of an obsession I think.
One of the things I love about the blog community is the new ideas and inspiration that is generated. Sometimes I just get stuck in my own little world and then you all give me a little poke. Most of the time you probably don't even know that you've given me new ways of thinking. I'm very grateful for those nudges. I'd especially like to thank Katie and Marie for pushing me in new directions with the colours on these.
Katie of Katies Blog saw a coral pendant and the coral spiral square beads and thought ummm, that might look nice as a background for daisies. She was right! The daisy buttons, beads, and connectors I made are fresh and summery. I thought maybe it might work as a background for the floral pendants and I must say I'm pleased. Marie of Skye Jewels looked at a button I have in deep green and blue green background and asked about the floral pendants in that combination. And another winner, I think.
And between the two of them they pushed me into thinking of other glazes I had and how they might be layered and manipulated. Thanks Katie and Marie!
I'm off to get ready for the Art Market tomorrow. This time I'm definitely going to get photos. I have a list. The camera is on it. Now I just need to locate that list.
Have a great weekend everyone!

I love them LeAnn! Especially the two on the left side in the picture. The upper one so soft and light and the lower so clear and distinct.
Keep obsessed! I love these made with the lock... as you know by know but anyway :)
Have a happy weekend!

Those are really cool! I love the contrast of the white with blue background next to the green with dark blue background...And, I am glad that I was able to inspire you :o)

You have winners in all five of the colors and I just flat out love the patterns. Those are next on my list of I need...;^)

Katie said...

I will admire them from afar for now...I need to be a good girl and not spend so much money on beads (we'll see how long that lasts...)...Especially since I just paid for my custom order earlier today :o)

LeAnn is being kind enough to go out of town for the next week - a week without new eye candy to tempt me (hahaha)...

Yep, I love them all too. But the navy one is very striking! And I'm not particularly a navy person!

These new pendants are beautiful! I especially love the one in the center and the one on the bottom right corner...I like how the holes are placed on that one. I checked your Etsy shop but did not see them for sale there.
