This week, one lucky winner will score this treasure trove of components courtesy of the Lampwork Diva herself, Cindy Gimbrone! Up for grabs are two transparent green glass spirals, one Bling Link in silver and ivory, one Surreal Rhythms focal bead, one bronze Art Nouveau Stile Floreal Sunflower Connector, and one fine silver Victorian buckle connector. What a wonderful prize!
Just think of all the possibilities! The glass spirals could easily be transformed into a pair of Christmas Tree holiday earrings. Attach two lengths of chain and a closure to the Bling Link and dangle bits of chain and some charms from the glass link focal for an elegant and modern necklace. Use the fine silver Victorian buckle component in a wire-wrapped ring or in a cute charm bracelet. What about attaching the bronze connector to a leather cuff for an edgy, yet feminine piece of jewelry? The Surreal Rhythms focal inspired by Surrealist art and Beatnik poet would look great strung up on a simple chain or at the end of a seed beaded spiral rope lariat. Really... the possibilities are endless!
What I love about Cindy's underlining design principle is that she's not afraid to explore new materials and is constantly investigating new ways of doing things. Her work is vibrant with this ingenuity and one never knows what they'll come away with when they drop by her online shop.
I think Cindy does a great job promoting the idea that inspiration can be found anywhere. Whether it's directly from art or from creative challenges, or various educational pursuits. Inspiration is everywhere. Discover a great degree at online accountants. One would be surprised by how art can be derived from an unlikely places.
