Creative Spark Magazine 2015 Summer issue

Once again I was privileged to contribute to ZnetShows Inc.and Creative Spark Magazine. I was allowed to choose the Cultured  Sea Glass  Beads that I wanted to use. My inspiration was ” The Garden”. I love working in the dirt, getting my hands dirty and helping things to grow.  One of my favorite blooms in the garden has always been the Okra flower.



 This design was inspired by the Okra Flower. I have always loved the soft colours of this bloom. I used ‘ZnetShows‘ S82-B81  – Cultured Sea Glass rondelle Beads in – Opague Yellow, S06-B37-ONE – Cultured Sea Glass Beads 10mm round Medium Amethyst and the spacer beads that came with another strand of cultured Seaglass.(S03-23-ONE – Cultured Sea Glass  Beads Peridot)
I have added a Sterling silver Navajo Earring as a pandant. I lost the other one in the garden so I thought this would be appropriate.
I made a pair of matching earrings using silver chain, S06-B37-ONE – Cultured Sea Glass Beads 10mm Medium Amethyst and the spacer beads that came with another strand of cluttered Seaglass.(S03-23-ONE – Cultured Sea Glass Beads Peridot) and a small yellow crystal.

Looking at the conch shells reminded  me  that at  the end of the day the Okra flower closes . I used a silver curb chain along with S29-B84 – Cultured Sea Glass Beads (conch shell)  39x20mm 84-Lemon ,S06-B37-ONE – Cultured Sea Glass Beads 10mm 37-Medium Amethyst , and S42-B23FOUR – Cultured Sea Glass tusk Beads varies 23-Peridot (20-pc-str) . I added a few small yellow jade beads to complete the look.IMG_8786This next necklace  was inspired by the colors of my hydrangea bush.

  I used S86-B39 – Cultured Sea Glass Beads in Periwinkle alone with S63-B31 – Cultured Sea Glass Beads ( oval ring) 26x22mm 31-Light Sapphire ,04-B31FIVE – Cultured Sea Glass Beads 6mm 31-Light Sapphire -sky blue color (8-in-str)   and S76-B31 – Cultured Sea Glass hour glass Beads About 22x9mm 31-Light Sapphire.

IMG_8750-2For the earnings I broke the hourglass into 2 pieces S76-B31 – Cultured Sea Glass Beads About 22x9mm 31-Light Sapphire along with a blue/green crystal.

With this last necklace I looked to the delicate flower of the sweet pea.

They are so soft and delicate that the pebbles did not need much to complete the illusion. BDS1926-92 – Cultured Sea Glass Beads (pebbles) about 9x6mm 0 -92 opaque seafoam green,. I added a few end caps and a silver fern leaf like pendant and a delicate silver chain.
