This week I haven't had much time to focus on my current obsession with wire work and antique bronze pieces, but I have been thinking about the end of summer and how to make sure there's plenty of late summer items available in my shops.
In spring I bought a strand of brightly coloured shells but haven't known what to do with them. Then I thought they might contrast nicely with the dark wire and I could do some very simple wrapping. Sitting down one evening, I was going to really make myself go completely random with the pattern but alas, my controlling self got in the way, and as you'll see there are rigid patterns of seven colours in each section! So wish I could do something random or asymmetrical - perhaps this could be my crafter's challenge? Anyone else want to join me on that one?!
