I've been toying with this "watercolor" idea for a while now. There are many similar beads out there (which are freaking amazing)...so I need opinions.
I started with a lentil bead that I made some time ago...which ended up as this necklace:
Made a haphazard mold:
Don't mind the cornstarch "mold release"
And ended with these:
Didn't even brush the drill shavings off before I snapped a picture!
Just a different color combination.
These are still in the prototype phase. Maybe some in a more neutral color palette (I just used the colors that were on my work space today), making different flowers/vines, bigger and on a flat plate (not molding from a bead), bigger bracelet connectors, different shapes, etc. Should I antique them, or leave them be?
I'm pretty thick skinned, so critical comments and suggestions are welcome. If the majority think they are "copy cats" that's ok too...they'll find homes as presents for family, etc.
