My Kuala Lumpur Challenge Earrings

And here is my entry for Dini Bruinsma's Blogger Non Blogger Photo inspiration Challenge on Bead Soup Cafe. 

The two things that immediately struck me about the challenge picture are the vivid colours that show up against the dark brown to black background and the prominent rounded shapes. 


So I used multicolour freshwater pearls in shades of orange, yellow, red and brown with a few greens too and twisted them on silver plated copper wire to make funky hoops for earrings.




Good Luck everyone taking part!

Diary Date: 14 June 2015 - Meet Christina Stevens at Stamford Arts Centre

Christina Stevens: Artist in Lincolnshire working mostly in ceramics. "Most of my work is hand build, coil, pinch, and roll as well as other construction methods, often utilising formers to help support the clay until it is firm enough to support itself. I have a variety of press-moulds as well as sprigs and 2, 3, 4 piece plaster moulds I have made myself ( these are used mostly for slip-casting the ball jointed figures’ arms and torso.) I also use found objects, lace, plants and windflowers pressed into the clay to provide detail and pattern."  Read More via Christina Stevens « ESC Artists .

Broadband Outage

If its not one thing its another. No internet this morning. Apparently there was a broadband outage all over the country (even though I seem to be the only one who did not have internet!) Just got it back. I tried to use my mobile phone to go on the internet. Bah! I don't know how people do it! I did not like the experience which just made me more and more frustrated. Another Grrr moment! And before that I was woken up at about 4.30 AM by the phone. Strange time for a call! It stopped ringing by the time I got to it and they did not even leave a message! Anyway... Just felt like a moan! Now I feel better :-)
