My soup came from the superfly KJ of Silver Parrot. I will be creating with this stash for a while!
So Round 2. I have to admit that time got away from me this go 'round and I was up all night
playing with beads. Well, not all night. Half the night? Ok Fine. It was only a few hours. Dang, you're good.
It actually wasn't so much a matter of not having the time to work on it and more a matter of where am I going with this? I've had this focal laying on a bead tray with various other beads in various design schemes for 2 weeks, but the only thing jiving was my inner child shaking her head to the beat of a song called Uh Uh, that's not iiiiiii iiiit.
Yesterday I was packaging some lampwork and noticed this focal peeking out from the bottom of the pile, and that's when the proverbial light bulb exploded creating a new universe. Literally. I had been looking at this fantastic raku pendant as a flower, but seeing the planetary glass piece made me realize it is way more of a sunburst.
The glass focal has raised surface dots all the way around it. I should say had, because after I introduced it to the Diamond Max one side and the edges are smooth as buttah.
in a parallel universe colored with its own spice of life.
I gave her matching earrings
so she would have constellations in the sky.
