Meet Heliotrope

This is one of my new favorites…Heliotrope. The colors are magical, but this photo doesn’t capture them very well. Those dangling crystals are deep blue-purple.

I’ve just started a series of necklaces based on my favorite flowers–many of which are purple! Next I’m working on Hydrangea (pale blues, lavenders, greys) and Hyacinth (deep purple). Then waterlilies (opalescent).

In other news, I’m continuing with the Farragoz patina course I’m taking online. The second project was an old French clock face–here it is finished, but I have yet to distress it. Which is the most fun part! Layers and layers of stain and gesso both of which I make from scratch.
