Heather Powers of Humblebeads challenged 10 of us to create a piece of jewelry with inspiration from her book.
She sent each person a kit containing one of her beads, a photo print, and a short poem as a jumping off point.
This is the one I received.
The Wild Flower's Song
As I wander'd the forest,
The green leaves among,
I heard a wild flower
Singing a song.
I slept in the Earth
In the silent night,
I murmur'd my fears
And I felt delight.
The reveal date was moved, due to unforeseen delays, and is finally here.
I used a Kumihimo Disk to weave green, brown and orange linen and brown suede together and attached Heather's flower, and "Itty Bitty" ceramic leaves from Marti Conrad of Marti's Button n Beads. Then a second layer of strands of Sari Silk in avocado, and pale forest green, along with a melon colored ribbon were wrapped around copper wire to keep the shape and all attached to large copper links in this bracelet.
Have fun jumping to the others in this blog hop (Shelly Graham Turner was on the original list, but never received her kit):
