Welcome to Whimsy Wednesday!
This post is chock-full of whimsy and winged-things!
The perfect thing to help celebrate many of us as we look forward to Spring! Whee!!
Both winged creations are earrings and we'll start with a bit of buzz!
Ingredients: Honey Bee Mood beads, Czech glass, lead-free pewter(USA), metal, surgical steel earwires.
The Honey Bee beads are Mood beads, which means they change colour according to the temperature around them! Isn't that nifty? They are accented with honey-coloured beads and dangle from hypo-allergenic surgical steel earwires! Honey was considered to be the food of the Gods in Mayan and Greek cultures. Bees have long been associated with kings and gods and even the birth of the human race! Little wonder given the yummy richness of the honey they produce!
Let us turn to another winged creature - the dragonfly!
Title: Dragonfly Alights
Ingredients: hand-made metal dragonflies, Czech glass, Artistic wire, Sterling Silver.
I found the hand-made, metal dragonflies on Walkabout and knew they were destined to grow into some much more! Don't they have such a wonderful, architectural feel to them?
I suspended them from a lush green vine from sterling silver ear hoops, wrapping in a vibrant leaf the colour of new growth. The idea was to capture the vision of a dragonfly pausing to rest on a stalk of grass. Dragonflies have long been associated with the ability to see through the illusions of life and that which holds a person back from their dreams and goals.
Both of these creations will be available for adoption at my first show of 2013!
Burst Into Spring!
It is in Cambridge, MN, USA and details are here!
It would be grand to see you there!
In the meantime, I'll see you Friday!
