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!
