Inspiration Revisited




Remember my "Inspiration" post? I wanted to use the colors in the picture to create some pieces. I finally finished a few pieces using this striking blue and dark mauve combination. I think my favorite is the vintage button bracelet. The earrings are made from very dramatic vintage glass buttons. I started with some flashy dangles on those, but in this case, less really is more, so I opted for focusing on the buttons. Both the buttons and the blue leaves on the charm necklace have been in my bead boxes for a long time. I am glad they are finally "out of the box". With the inspiration from one picture I ended up with one pair of earrings, a bracelet and a necklace. I would LOVE to hear what inspires you when you work. All comments are most welcome!
