Artisan Clay and Emilio Pucci

This month for the Artisan Clay Design Team, Kristie sent us "surprise" beads.
Now, to let you in on a little secret....I HATE surprises. I hate to give and receive surprises.
I'm the one at Christmas dying to know what I'm getting while at the same time dying to tell you what I've gotten you.

So, I was just a little nervous to open her package....

and for no reason.
She sent me a bright green cab with the creamiest center of shattered glass.

My immediate feeling was to do something soft and springy maybe with a floral theme.

Uh-uh...the beads just weren't having it.

They wanted bright pop art in concentric circles and I was more than happy to deliver.

I layered the beads and even used orange! (I don't know what's gotten into me)
As I was working, I kept thinking of Emilio Pucci who really pioneered the bright kaleidoscopic patterns from the 1970's that are still so popular today.

I've listed it in my shop here: Emilio Pucci Pendant.
Also, thanks to everyone who has taken advantage of my celebration sale from my last post!
The coupon code still stands and will be good until June 1st.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for the Margie and Me reveal and a surprise!

I hope you'll take some time to visit all the Design Team blogs today. Hop on over Kristie's blog and see what the other designers created using her pieces.
