One of my favourite things about designing, either components or jewellery is the constant source of inspiration from the seasons. We’ve had it all here in the UK for the last couple of weeks, rain, snow, hail, frost, winds and blazing sunshine. But there is a definite change in the air and Spring is starting to show it’s here as the bulbs start to push up through the frozen soil.
This is my latest creation, hand carved earthenware beads with hand drawn images. I like the mixture of colour with the white carving adding in the detail.
Like me, other component makers are busy making up spring designs, and I’ve gathered up some of my favourites to share with you today, all perfect to create some fresh new designs for the change in seasons.
