Chunky And Late!
One day late but hey, I was busy!
So what did I learn abut chunky jewelry. Well for someone who doesn't always wear chunky jewelry it can be a little more of a challenge. But I'm an artist right? Should be no problem, right? Well of course I can make simple things a problem. Lately I tend to overthink things and with that I overwhelm my artistic flow. You can see from last month's post I had several Ideas and even had a color palette, ordered beads and materials to finish it. But NOOOO! I had to get myself frazzled and dislike everything. First I didn't like how dark it was, it's Spring! I wanted a lighter color palette. The new Pantone for 2016 color is Blush a baby pink and a baby blue.
But over and over I got stuck with dark colors and antique brass. I love antique brass but not for Spring.
I went around and around and with constant interruptions from life in general stopping or slowing me down. I finally just made something that has been in my radar for a while.
I wanted to make simpler necklaces and had found some Czech owl beads from
Solana Kai Beads. Along with other beads in a brighter color palette that I had started collecting.
I also found a chain belt at T.J. Max to take apart for this challenge.
Soooo, consequently I have a partly chunky necklace!
Package from Lima Beads. I was going to use the arrow head that I got from my father. I really wanted to do a primitive theme. I'm still going to work on this one though.
Here's the end result chunky ring, chunky clay bead.
