I picked a theme that I thought we could have some fun with that is an old adage for brides. And then I sent out the mixture to match: something old (reclaimed sari silk), something new (imperial jasper), something borrowed (several remaining leaf toggles from a ZnetShows hop) and something blue (apatite rounds).
Meaning: It is said that something old represents continuity, something new offers optimism for the future, something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness, something blue stands for purity, love and fidelity and a sixpence in your show is a wish for good fortune and prosperity
June tend to be a month for weddings, so I thought I'd challenge us with the theme, but I'm hoping I see some great non-traditional pieces with the loot!
For some reason I was so excited to get this out to all the other artists that I didn't remember to take a picture of the beads before dropping them into the mail. But Monique, Sally and Therese all sent me pictures ... and so I'm going to use them all. Thanks Ladies! Can't wait to see what all of you made! Be sure to check back in to see everyone's reveals: Alicia, (our host), Christine, Emma, Monique, Sally and Therese.
