Today is the first reveal date of The Creative Continuum of Seven Artists. A few months ago Alicia of All Pretty Things blog contacted me and five other wonderfully talented creative Ladies and asked us if we would like to be a part of an idea she had for a blog hop, so of course we all said yes. So after a few emails we ironed out the details. Each of us was given a month for our blog hop. We each picked a theme for our month and then sent out to each member a package of beads to represent our theme. Monique's month is January and her theme is National Gallery of Canada click on the link to read more about the National Gallery of Canada. Here is what I received from Monique:
Monique is a polymer clay artist and here work is awesome, so is the pretty bag she sent her items in.
I chose to use the polymer clay flower and the wooden beads. The first piece I made is a bead embroidered cuff.
I love the focal for this cuff it is beautiful. I chose to use glass pearls in brown, gold, blue, and gold crystal roundels. I did an asymmetrical band with some of the wooden beads. I have had the clasp for a long time and felt that it was the perfect clasp for this piece.
I wanted to use more of the beads that Monique sent in her package so I made this bracelet that I call Square Peg in a Round Hole.
Thank you Monique for the wonderful package you sent to create with I hope I did it justice.
Thank you Alicia for inviting me to be a part of this group. I am looking forward to the next 6 months of creating.
Here is a list of the other members of The Creative Continuum of Seven Artists, please go by their blogs and see what they created with Monique's theme package.
