Bounty


About this design:

My husband said, "It kinda looks like one of those horns of plenty." I was so pleased because bounty--abundance--is what this piece is about.

Components:

Lots! Gaea ceramic pendant and rounds, saucers by unknown artist; wooden saucers and flat ovals; seed rounds; recycled glass nuggets; fire agate; olive jade; Czech rounds, ron delles, flowers, leaves and squares; silk ribbon; antique brass chain

    Wow..what a work of art. It reminds me of an English garden. So elegant and soft. Dressy,casual,you name it. Tres chic!

    Thanks Nancy, Becky. The ribbon is so pretty on its own, I almost wish I’d used it in a design where it could take center stage.

    Husbands come out with some odd comments every so often! I don’t think it looks like a horn of plenty at all, but I understand what he means. It’s lush and full of movement and richness. A beautiful piece Laud. One that needs a second and third look to see all the wonderful components and combinations.

    What an exquisite “statement piece” Laud. Its fabulous. I can’t imagine making such an artistic and interesting piece. But I can imagine wearing this whether in some new jeans with a smart top and a jacket -or- a lovely dressy dress or pant suit. Whoever gets to own this will be so pleased.
