I’ve been working a little slowly lately, what with the sore wrist and little inspiration. I think that’s normal for this time of year, after all the creativity of December. I’ve heard other bloggers mention it, such as Lisa J. over at http://lilfishstudios.blogspot.com/ However, I have been making some Valentine brooches for the big day. One is in the cooler tones and the other warmer. It’s hard to see in the lower one, but there is stitching around it to show me the outer edges so I don’t stitch past them. I love this encrusted style and I love texture.
Next up, some brooches or necklace beads (like the one below) in icy white, silver, and maybe some pale purples as well in honour of winter.
This necklace was made for a friend for Christmas in colours she loves.
Any suggestions as to the shape of the ‘winter’ brooches?
