Seeds

A sketchbook page of seed inspired earrings.






























They came from a wonderful book that I just got called "Seeds."






























It's a mind-boggling coffee table book - every seed looks like a potential bead. Well, to me, anyway. But just about anything makes me think of beads.

















Here are some of my first attempts. These lentils, above, have a dot of Opalino Nile Green in the center, encased with Cims Cirrus and a ruffle of Cims Dusk around the edge.


















This pair have dark transparent purple centers, wrapped in fine silver foil, encased in light transparent brown.

I cannot wait to get back at the torch this week and have at these sketches again.
