Our challenge was to use the Humblebead, the inspirational picture and poem to create a nature inspired piece.
I used the tree branch and colors from the inspirational photo below, but I toned down the browns, pink and greens so Heathers' Meadowlark Pendant would shine. I used an antique silver chain as the silver light after a storm. A bough of green raffia is woven throughout the chain. The glass leaf symbolizes growth, creativity and joy.
Since the pendant easily pops in and out of the polymer clay tree bezel, I thought I would try my hand at creating another one. I like the first one better, but the below experiment was fun.
