Ok so I did get a chance to finish my piece for the Etsy Challenge for August. The Theme is "Art Deco". I was very inspired by many things about the art Deco theme. I did some research and found that cool colors were the color scheme's for that time period. Green was very popular. I chose to go with blue for the other color due to me reading that Ocean Liners were among things that were very Art Deco as well and I thought Blue when I heard that. I read that they had jumbled shapes which I have done with glass beads along with my bead wrapped Bloodstone on the wrist of the bracelet. The boldness of curves and stepping also inspired me as well. And sunburst were typical of this time which I have created for the closer of the piece.This is my own take on "Art Deco" and hope you all appreciate that.I really am more than happy with the end result it took me a few weeks to finish and get it just right. I love the end result.
Also I loved the way the Bloodstone turned out and was wrapped in the piece. I cant get over how perfect it turned out. If you know me you know I love stones and to incorporate them in every piece I have if I am able. I hope you all enjoy checking this piece out as I enjoyed creating it. I guess I should mention this is a freeform bracelet. I guess I am so excited about it all I forgot to mention that in the listing also yikes.
