Welcome to Fini Friday!
I hope your week was fabulous and that your weekend is equal to or better than that! I've had a whirlwind of the an end to the work week and am looking forward to some fun with friends in and amongst some other events this weekend! YAY Friends!
I've finished a few pairs of earrings with some of those green with-white-polka-dot beads which were debuted on Wednesday!
Let me show you!
Title: Forest Faerie Mushrooms
Ingredients: Bali silver, Glass, metal, surgical steel earwires.
This was the first idea that popped to mind upon receiving these beads and I love how the beads shift and change just a bit as they dangle... just as real mushrooms are not always perfect, and adapt to the environment around them!
Title: Faerie Gambling Tools
Ingredients: Bali silver, Glass, Artistic wire, surgical steel earwires.
These square beads reminded me right away of dice and I love the idea of Faeries, dice and good-natured gambling games! How these dice are used and how the games are played is left to Imagination and the Faeries!
And finally, a new challenge that I'm giving myself! Below are three charms that were gifted to me from another artist who received them as a gift. No ideas came to her as to what to create with them and so they were passed on to me. I'm thinking of possibly brushing on resin on the hawk/eagles' wings, but the experiment I've set myself is with the skull. I normally don't really care to work with skulls much, especially those that are specifically designed to be menacing or scary. However, an idea has surfaced regarding this and I'm pondering painting, using resin or etc. to the style of the Sugar Skulls seen at Day of the Dead celebrations. Other inspirations may emerge as the creation starts, and I'm intrigued to see what happens with it (and them all!)
That's it for this Fini Friday!
Below is a little reminder of where I'll be in a little less than two weeks!
