So for the first time, I have an inspiration other than the beads in my stash. My parents recently bought a 2nd home in North Carolina, and during the purchase process, the original owner sent some pics of the flowers in bloom. They were all beautiful, but the pics of the azalea with the rhododendron in the background is absolutely gorgeous. Here's the pic:
So, like I said, I finally have inspiration outside of my beads (don't get me wrong, I have some awesome beads, and they've led me to some wonderful ideas), but I so so SO want to make something (maybe a set!) based on the colors in this pic. I mean, look at it! The orangy-pink, and the pale blue-purple, with the green? Gorgeous!! I'm just so taken with this image! I think I have the beads to do this, but I'm not sure yet how I want to work it. Links, weaving, stringing, a combo of all of the above? I just don't know.... But I'll figure it out! I'll post pics when I do!
