Yes, it is April, it is Spring, and I am just now getting around to showing you my ArtBeads Winter Enchantment blog partner piece. I'm what I like to call.... slow.
Anyhoo, I LOVE what I made, so that must count for something, right?
It all started with this watch face, (I'm all about making watches now so look out! ) and these luster finished Czech glass beads.
Once I started to build the watch I realized that the Winter theme wasn't really sticking around.... I was choosing greens and plums instead of icy blues and grays. Oh well. For me it's all about the passing of time - waiting for Winter to end - longing for Spring.
Along with the watch face and the Czech beads I added several of my own handmade porcelain beads and one glorious lampwork egg made by my friend, Kelley, of Kelley's Beads.
Making this piece has fueled my interest in making more watches, for sure. Artbeads.com has a lot to choose from but most of them are out of stock as the moment. (hmmm, these ARE hot at the moment!). So hurry up, Artbeads, and get some more in stock so I can feed my new addiction!! Please. ;)
This watch can be found in my shop. :)
