How’s everyone getting along with this month’s challenge? I’m getting in early with this month’s Etsy picks – I hope you find something here to tempt or inspire you.
Of course, in searching for selections I searched for leafy pieces – how could I not?!
How perfect would these leaves be?
Or if you’re in the mood for making earrings, you might work with these sweet little charms, each holding a leafy profusion – like the challenge painting.
Here’s another nice earring option:
Or, if you’re looking to make bracelets, how about this?
I really love the range of fiery, tropical shades in the painting and when looking for picks I instantly thought about Wooly Wire. I got some recently that was not dissimilar in colour to those in the painting and I was sure I could find a good match in their Etsy shop. I wasn’t wrong.
The colours in this Grubbi set couldn’t be a better fit either. There were a number of listings in Natalie’s shop in similar shades.
I also think the shades and shapes in this set of Numinosity beads could work brilliantly if you fancy taking a more abstract approach to the challenge.
I’m always thinking that I could do to have more Boro lampwork beads in my stash. Even though my technical knowledge of what makes Boro beads Boro is lacking, whenever I see them I adore them!
To finish, here’s another piece of beautifully-hued lampwork loveliness – and another thing I wish I had in my collection.
Bye for now, Claire
