Art beads are happiest in fresh air being admired by all!
I thoroughly enjoy seeing jewelry show up in my Facebook feed that feature my beads! I'm always thrilled at how clever designers are and love seeing all the different ways my beads are used. If you share something on Facebook make sure you tag me either as Heather Powers or Humblebeads. Or share your creations directly on my Facebook page.
Martha Thomas of Martha's Ruby Acorn is one such designer who brightens my day every time I see one of her jewelry creations sporting a Humblebead! So much so, that I just had to share some of my favorites with you. Enjoy the eye candy!
A bright and sunny Van Gogh Sunflower Long bead is paired up with lampwork glass and lush silk ribbon.
Humblebeads Bittersweet disk beads are paired with pearls. I love the little touches here like the bead caps on the bottom of the pearls and the pieces of wire curled into tendrils.
One of my favorite pieces from Martha pairs up my Peacock bracelet cuff with a few peacock Humblebeads disks and complemented by a rustic bit of silk ribbon for a very bohemian effect.
This pair of earrings really caught my attention. What a great way to make tiny charms get noticed! Great mix of materials with the leather, waxed linen and metal findings.
Martha used a few beads from one of my Blooms & Birds sets to create this fun bracelet. Very clever asymentrical design here using the bead color to unite the three larger elements and even though they are very different they have have the same visual weight which makes this bracelet a very pleasing design.
M: I've been making jewelry for about eight and a half years now. I never tire of playing with textures and colors. The name for my shop came about like this . . . I love the simplicity of acorns, as well as the saying: inside every acorn is an entire forest. To round out the name I included my birthstone: ruby. And voila! Ruby Acorn was born!
You can find Martha's shop at Martha's Ruby Acorn on Etsy.
Thank you Martha for sharing your creations with us!
