Rosanne created this necklace earlier this fall using one of my bird pendents. You'll notice the seed beads on the right. She named this piece Indian Summer, for those brief days in the fall when the weather turns warm again. This was her first asymmetrical design, I'm so proud.
Last night my mom sent me this photo of a bracelet she just made using the same seed beads. They look like colorful kernels of corn, don't they? The bracelet is called Harvest Moon. In case you are wondering those beads have been crocheted together, each one interlocked into a chain. I love it! I joked that I should make earrings and we'd have a complete set.
So when I came into the studio today I spent a few minutes whipping up these earrings using the same beads. I'll call these ones Seeds of Change. I paired mine with gunmetal findings, chain and my teal Branch disk beads.
After I finished it was fun to think of how this strand of beads connected my family across the country - in Michigan, Louisiana and Texas. You know what they say, "The family that crafts together, stays together." Well, okay maybe I'm the only one who says that!
