Summer Creation

I know summer is a long way off!
But, during this cold weather, 
I can't help thinking about warmer days ahead.
Today the wind is whipping and biting!
A good day to stay indoors and work on some projects.

I made this bracelet for myself, to wear this summer.
Swarovski crystals and tiny silk bows.
Turquoise and green-
As I've said before-my favorite colors.

To me, 
sitting down at my desk covered with colorful beads and ribbon
is like being in a candy shop.
It's inspiring!

Not sure what I'll work on today-
I have a few mixed media pieces started and set aside.
They're near my desk and when the feeling strikes, 
I'll add something to them until I feel they're complete.
A couple of sketches are waiting to be painted
or there are always some jewelry pieces in the works.
We'll see!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Your bracelet is so pretty, and in some of my favourite colours. I hope it's okay if I borrow the concept of tying ribbons on bracelets! Visiting via A Daily Cup.

Hi Lynn,
Your bracelet is so pretty. I love that color combination! The little bows are so sweet and who doesn't love crystals? Cold and windy here today too. Decided to start pulling out Easter decor to give me hope of Spring. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Is turquoise the prettiest color ever??? I can't believe you made this bracelet, it's so cute. I love the heart hanging from it. I just decorated my kitchen in turquoise. It definately is the color of spring and summer.
