Pink Saturday ~ Feb 21

Happy Pink Saturday! There have been a huge number of participants, so make sure you go to Beverly's blog to say hi & see who else is showing their pink.Here are a few works in progress on my craft table. I'm so excited about where my work is going these days. I keep finding these little tangents & going down those paths. I think I may even have another collection in me. I am such NOT a collection designer, but I'm just going with it. It's wonderful to have all these ideas swirling in my head.
Left to right:
  • A faceted button layered with a fish button on a brass setting. A glass & fresh water pearl & Swarovski starfish dangle from vintage chain. I've been playing with these elements for a couple of weeks & finally had a break through.
  • The next necklace has pink & yellow Czech glass beads on one side. I think I'm going to put some vintage chain on the other (just waiting for some new supplies to arrive). This bead is so pretty. It has a mix of clear & opaque pink & yellow colors. It has a vintage brass heart shaped lock with a heart shaped key (finished by Patina Queen), a pink Swarovski ring & glass pearls.
  • The last one is a "bouquet" of flowers & crystals from an orphaned earring. The bouquet has lots of pink crystals & flowers. It hangs from vintage chain. I had to ask my hubby if it looked alright all on it's lonesome. I have that "more is better" symdrome sometimes :)
Last but not least is the funniest cartoon my mom sent me in my Valentine's package. I immediately thought of my Pink Saturday friends! While I am a proud Florida State alumn, I got a good laugh from this one. I also have to take some pics of some crochet flowers my mom made me. I got a couple of pink ones & used one on my sweater this week.
