This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is another new word for my vocabulary. I really like how these last few weeks I have had to go beyond my comfort zone and really dig deep in my design brain.
This weeks word is Umbra, I had to look it up because at first I thought it was ombre, until I realized that started with an O and not a U. LOL! So i went to my trusty Wikipedia. Seems Umbra is 1 of 3 parts of a shadow. So my inchie shows that sorta, lol I just did the umbra part of the shadow and not the other 2 since they were not part of the theme. (I am having issues loading pictures to my blog so I am just gonna have to post links to pictures, sorry about that) Umbra
Also this week I finished 2 more commission pieces. One is a family tree necklace. The colors on the tree are birthstones, the top on each side is the daughters birthstones and the 2 under each of those are their children's birthstones. I then wove the branches up the necklace and added the birthstones alone the length of the branches. Making them bigger than the ones on the tree. The ones on the tree represent eggs and the ones on the necklace represent birds. I really enjoyed designing this one and figuring out the necklace design.
The other commission item I finished is a beaded key chain with the clients name and her husbands name with a big pink heart between them. This is the third key chain that I have made. I really like making them.
Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great artwork done by the awesome inchie artist and have a blessed and creative week.
Gosh, beautiful works of art! That family tree is WOW! Inchie is well expressed - I love how you always find a beaded solution for the words.ReplyDelete
