ONE FOR THE SHOP AND ONE FOR ME

This one is for me! I had admired Shannon LeVart's tutorial for Recycled Sari Silk and Stone Bangle for a while, So I finally purchased it, and let me just say, it is the best! It is just my style, loose, free, and really a lot of fun! I just loved making this, and can't wait to make a bunch more. A lot of times I devote a lot of time into the creative process of making my pieces, there is a lot of meaning behind them, but sometimes I just like to put things together because I like the colors and the shapes, and it is solely about that relationship, the design. So that is what you see here, two pieces made just like that, one for me, and one for my shop! Be sure to visit Shannon's blog, MissFickleMedia, you won't be disappointed, amazing is an understatement.
As always, thanks for visiting. I really appreciate all of you.

I have Shannon's patina tutorial. It is superb! Your sari bangles are gorgeous. I'm happy you are keeping one for yourself. It's hard to do sometimes, isn't it? Shannon's tutotrials are fantastic because they provide that stepping off point to make it your own. Clearly, you've done that and I love your bangles!

the bracelet turned out great - i know exactly what you mean about working intentionally and then just kind of letting things flow because of shape and color... both are good for you - glad you found another way to express that... and the earrings are lovely...
