Sounded like fun! So I signed up and chose orange—my favorite color! And then after I signed up, I suddenly questioned why I had chosen my favorite color—where would the challenge be in that?
I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to make from the start (or so I thought). And so, thinking I'd have an easy time, I allowed other things to distract me... until Friday—yes, yesterday—and then the panic hit! Creating in orange was MUCH harder than I thought!
Come see what I made...
And this is what I made! Two horsey bracelets!
little prancing pony in dark burnt orange polymer clay, echoing the design of my wooden Strider, and strung it with amber "sea glass" rounds and carnelian discs.
Little tiny polymer Strider in all his cuteness!
The real Strider. He's kinda orange, don't you think? :-)
Beading by Malin de Koning was my inspiration for this second bracelet. She's makes some incredibly beautiful macrame bracelets! So, I dusted off my old macrame book, wondering if I'd still remember how to tie square knots... surprisingly it all came back to me and I had everything all strung together in a very short time! Don't look at it too hard—there may be some mistakes! For my first macrame bracelet, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, if I do say so myself! :-)
Thanks for the fabulous challenge Sally! I learned that even my most favorite color can be a challenge! And rising to that challenge was so much fun!!
Check out what everyone else created with their colors...
