“Flight”

 

Description from Maggies Mom: I don't even know how to describe this. It started with the dragonfly bead, and I started all earthy because the small picture only shows that part. When enlarged, you see all the electric colors and shine. So I added some shine and other colors. It was a confusing process and I ended up with this. Definitely not a POD! :D

    Maybe I should rename it “The Mess”!

    BevB says:

    No you shouldn’t! I love the colors of your pick. And it just might be a POD.

    I agree with BevB. When I first saw it I was amazed at how pretty the colors look together. I think POD also. Amazing.

    Don’t sell yourself short– this came out beautiful! You picked up the electric brights in the dragonfly beads and found the subtler tones to tie in to keep it calm enough to really evoke pleasure. The ABG magenta copper focal in this is genius. My humble suggestion: swap the pure white Irish waxed linen for a calm color– maybe a blue or lavender or just natural. May add depth strung through the lime seed beads; the frosted finish should preserve enough of the bright green even with the darker string. The white just seems too stark to me. It may just be me. Either way, I totally think this is worthy of POD! I love it & it’s a fave.

    Not a mess! Its pretty but it is good you explained your process. We’ve all been there. I can’t tell you how many picks I’ve worked on until I just gave up and deleted it. Another name might be “Dragonfly Dream.” :)

    Harmony in color. Love it!

    Maggies Mom says:

    Awww, thanks for your sweet comments! You’ve given me confidence to try to make something from this, since I’ll probably end up buying the dragonfly bead. And EPBCornell, thanks for your suggestion about thread color; I changed it to lavender, and it looks better! Not sure if the change took …

    Kathryn R says:

    MM, I beg to disagree about not a POD! This pick is so beautiful with all its summer colors! This has definite POD possibilities. I agree with EPBCornell that a softer color linen cord would be nicer. I love Nancy’s title!

    Congrats!

  10. EPBCornell
    EPBCornell says:

    Aha! Indeed a POD! Congrats, MM, on your worthy POD! Still delighting and a fave. I do like it better with the lavender linen than the white, and think it would add some interesting depth when stringing the translucent beads, even the frosted lime. Thanks for trying my suggestion. Such an exciting pick and great job with the enticing but challenging wasabi dragonfly coins!
