Lovely Flowers for Lovely Ladies

This week has been a whirlwind - I feel like it's flown by! It's surprising how little of the day is left after work and driving home! Sometimes it's nice to come home and relax after dinner, and work on something creative. I've got a new painting in the works, inspired by the sea and my beach-faring desires. I also have been stocking up on my Spring Bloom Necklaces in every colour of the rainbow for the convention this summer!

This is by far one of my favourite pieces to make! Pictured here is my Marine Turquoise Bloom; I recently switched over from using exclusively Sculpey to using Premo, and wow - what a difference. The colour jumps right out of the clay, and has a subtle shimmer to it. Thought I ought to make a recommendation to all you fellow sculptors out there!

As for the design, I was actually originally inspired by the fabric flowers that are sprinkled (and heart'd by me) all over Etsy. I wanted to create something delicate and playful in clay (since fabric isn't my forte), and voila! Through fun experimentation and surprises, my line of Spring Bloom Necklaces was created! Don't you love those happy discoveries? When something totally unexpected and unplanned happens and you're like, "Wow, that looks fabulous!"? I've found that these look great with jeans and a tee, but also with a summer sun dress, and even as jewelry for bridesmaids (these have been featured in various colours in several different weddings!)

Also, did you know that I'm giving one of these away? Like, for free?

One last thing, little birdies... I am going to bright, glittering Las Vegas over the next four days (it will be my first time!), so I will not be able to blog much. However, I am taking my lovely camera, and will have some fabulous photographs to post next week, as well as some "What I Wore" illustrations of the glamourous outfits my sister and I have planned (we call these our "hot girl disguises"). Vivaaaaaa Las Vegas!
