Okay, I better get this post up ASAP, all my other ladies are one top of things!
Just to refresh, here is last week's challenge. A gorgeous tiled mosaic taken from Islamic architecture.
This one was a little tough, at least for me, the colors were waaay outside of my comfort range. (At least that's what I thought until I started working with it!)
My first idea was to create a Persian Ring using the colors. I needed to write up the tutorial for this ring anyway, and these colors were perfect to create another colorway for the tutorial.
But, I have used the Persian Ring for two other Margie and Me challenges and felt like I was kinda being lazy, so I decided to see what I could make using the Persian Ring pattern. (That's another great tip for creating new things, how can you twist an already great idea?)
The result was this necklace, which resulted in another booyah moment for me when I put it on. I LOVE it! It's modern, and kinda funky, but definitely an eye catcher.
To make it, I created three versions of my Persian Tile Ring, skipped the strap and just connected the three pieces at the corners.
The result is an almost bib-style necklace, but on a smaller scale, I listed it in my shop here.
Last but not least, because I really fell in love with this palette, I created a ring.
Now, I've told you before that I really want to start creating objects with more texture, kinda 3D. Well, my experimentation resulted in an extremely odd-looking ring.
I'm calling it the Mad Hatter, because it looks kinda like a wonky top hat and also because I was watching Alice in Wonderland when I created it. It features a 10mm round with a surrounded beadwoven "bezel" from there it kinda flares out like an octopus. I know, it sounds weird, and it looks even weirder, but I've been wearing it around for a couple of days now, and it's kinda growing on me (all fungus like).
Okay, here's where you guys get to show off!
First up, I'll show you Shirley's bracelet that she created. Simple herringbone with punches of that bright blue from the challenge palette.
Now it's your turn! Post your link at the bottom. I'm so eager to see what everyone has created. Thanks for playing along guys!
