One Crayon Colour Blog Hop

Sally challenged us to come up with a monochromatic design in a crayon colour of our choice - I chose blue. I often work with teals, aquas and turquoises, but usually more green in tone. I love blue though. Here's my blue on blue:

a mixed media cuff

hand dyed silk ribbon - www.sowzeredesigns.com

patinated blue chain - www.missficklemedia.etsy.com

 enamelled flower - www.gardannebeads.etsy.com
 
gemstones, including labradorite with the most amazing blue flash I've ever seen - www.precioussparklebeads.co.uk

Rebecca,
Your cuff is very pretty. I like how you incorporated the soft silk with the hard of the chain and stones. All the different shades of blue that you chose are beautiful together.

Beautimous! Even though there's no turquoise or red to be found, it's still definitely YOU. I love the big fabric bit too, so soft :)

I adore blue. You nailed it. The mix of all the stones and silk just make this so lovely. The hints of blue on the chain just set it over the top. I really really like this!

Gorgeous cuff and design.

That is one gorgeous blue bracelet. Love the layering on the silk and all the heavy wire wrapping. Great job!

Pretty Things said...

I love the width of the ribbon, and how the beads lie on it. And I also like how you wrapped your briolettes -- perfect. Beautiful!

AntiquityTravelers said...

wonderful mixed media! love how the beading falls over the silk.

CraftyHope said...

That cuff really makes me sigh. It's so romantic and girlie. I'm amazed that you were able to capture that flash of blue in the labradorite. It's such a cool stone! As always, your work is amazing!

Alice said...

Rebecca,

This is such a gorgeous piece! The colors of the beads and the silk are amazing. And the metal keeps this feminine piece from being too 'girly'. Fabulous!

That is seriously amazing. I love the ribbon and the blue chain and all the beads. It is just to die for. I love it!

Tracy said...

Such a pretty blue design, I love the way you've incorporated the silk piece and the patined chain - it works together perfectly. :)

Alicia said...

I love your cuff, Rebecca - I'm quite terrified of mixing elements, so I love when I see designs that put them together so nicely, so balanced, it's a beauty!

Holly said...

Rebecca, what a gorgeous cuff! The textures and movement are amazing. And that labradorite is stunning - you can see a bit of the flash in the pic! You work so beautifully in mixing materials...

Great mix of materials and textures. I really liked seeing both the detail photos and the your last photo of the cuff being worn. Very hip.

Katherine Gale said...

This is a WOW bracelet! Everything about it speaks to me - looks like it took ages to make and I love that you incorporated so many elements that go together wonderfully. It is like a song sung perfectly on key!

SueBeads said...

Very nice!

Jo said...

Oh that is gorgeous! But then again, I knew your entry would be :)
I never would have thought of layering everything over a wide ribbon, but it works perfectly, and I bet it's really comfortable to wear. And that labradorite - wow!
