To participate you must purchase a Design Kit from my Shop, featuring a polymer clay link from Heather Wynn-Millican of SwoonDimples, a polymer clay pendant from Heather Powers of HumbleBeads, enameled flowers from Sara of C-Koop Beads, original vintage Miriam Haskell beads, Swarovski crystals, purple-colored flexible beading wire from Soft Flex Company, and a Luxury Bead Blend.
The Luxury Bead Blends consists of Japanese Tho seed beads, Miyuki seed beads, vintage Czech seed beads, freshwater pearls, coral chip, garnet rounds, Botswana agate rounds, vintage sequins, and other semi-precious stones, German pressed glass and Czech glass.
In selecting the pieces for the Design Kit, I thought about the quality of light at twilight in the garden. September is traditionally a time of harvest, of being in the garden until the light fades from the sky and it's a brilliant wash of pale purples, violets, and lilacs. It's the time before night falls, where stars are just emerging and the last traces of day can still be felt. It's a time of balance... between the fiery reds of summer and the deep blues of late autumn. The color palette reflects that in between time. It's also my birthday month and I wanted to include pieces from some of my favorite folks.
With your kit, using as much or as little of it as you like, create a piece that showcases your creativity, individuality, and artistic expression. Ideally your creation will spotlight the great artisan components included, but the sky's the limit with what you make. Keep your project secret until the reveal date!
