Happy Saturday! It’s been a busy week. Not work wise, even though I have a virtual ton to get done. I had to decide what was important. My daughter and only grandchild are moving to Minneapolis because of my son-in-law’s job. They left yesterday. I spent as time as possible with them this week. That was very important to me. Not much was accomplished in the studio.
Never fear, I have new things to show you. Above are my bead buttons or pearl buttons as some call them. These have been around for awhile. A recent order brought this about. She needed hers to look like peas for a new coat she designed. I decided to reinvent/revive them. We all need a face lift at some point. Originally they were only in solid colors. Single colors have their place but knew I could “kick it up a notch.” I am really enjoying the neon underglazes from Duncan.
They are just hot with the high contrast of black.
Above you see the neon base colors with black dots, black spirals that look like stripes and layered dots (about 6 layers).
The buttons look so great all piled together. Color, color, color!
What have you reinvented/revived/risen like a Phoenix?
Leave your answer in the comments section and next Saturday, one winner will be chosen. The prize is a 2 of the new bead buttons shown above. They would make great charms or clasp.
