As you might know, I’m a member of the Fire Divas, a fabulous group of networking lampworkers. We’re having a new Bead Challenge within the Fire Divas team for February. It’s called “Ice, ice baby”.
If you’ve been following this blog (or my Facebook fan page) already for a few months, then you know that this challenge “speaks to me”. In recent months I drew lots of inspiration from ice, glaciers, icicles and winter.
For this challenge I re-interpreted my “icicles” series from early winter. This time I took the icicle shape really literal – instead of abstracting it into a modern, sleek shape, I shaped the beads to look like real-live icicles.
Here’s the result of my challenge beads: “Blue Ice”
I made also a couple of other bead sets inspired by this challenge, but will not submit them (because I can only submit 1 entry). These ones are listed on my webpage for sale.
Would love to hear your feedback. Do you think I selected the right beads for the challenge? Or should I have gone with the Fairy Ice Cubes instead (my favorite)?
