William Morris speaks my language - loud and clear. Mr. Morris was a textile designer who was part of the Arts & Crafts Movement which celebrated the marriage of nature, design and the handmade. The Arts and Crafts Movement was from the 1860s-1910's.
"It stood for traditional craftsmanship using simple forms and often applied medieval, romantic or folk styles of decoration." - Wikipedia
That my kind of movement! Inpsired by William Morris' designs and colors I created three sets of pendants and beads in a few of my favorite styles.
Above is Honeysuckle. Oh my gosh, I loved tasting honeysuckle as a kid and every time I smell those sweet blossoms it takes me right back to my childhood.
You can find these in my Etsy shop. I only have a few sets available now. These are some of the new styles I will have at Bead & Button this year as I'm working on a series of Art Inspired beads. Which ones are your favorite?
Love them all! And William Morris work... I just would love to have it all integrated into my apartment, as wall paper, fabric, whatever! At least I have beautiful mugs from the V&A in London with his pattern ;)
Gorgeous! They're all pretty, especially the pendants, but my favourite is the honeysuckle pendant.
Beautiful, love them all
Great inspiration and gorgeous beads!
So delicate, Heather. Wonderful!
Just beautiful Heather!
Lovely! Especially the honeysuckle.
Lovely! I think the Windrush ones are my favorites!
I love your new beads, the honeysuckle in particular are just stunning. I loved tasting them when I was a kid too - we had a park a few blocks from our house and it was full of honeysuckle trees. Thanks for the great memories you brought back and I can't wait to see you at bead and button!
