Texture & Color
I am feeling quite frustrated with my garden at the moment, the flowers are beautiful - it's just that the weeds are winning in a large area! So I felt the need to look at photographs I had taken from the garden earlier in the year. And there it was, a lovely image of an iris just after a spring rain... I adore iris... to me they are just such beautiful flowers and they are just so simply elegant. As I looked at the colors and the waterdroplets I was reminded of a set of purple mokume gane beads that I had made for the recent show. As I compared the two images I found myself wondering if I could take further inspiration from this link and possibly create something in polymer with even more sparkle. Hmmmm... we'll have to see.
