Welcome to OT 2009! The Ornament Thursday group has lots planned this year all around unusual colors and color names. This month kicks it off with the theme “Celeste” and our projects center around a pale, icy blue shade.
With most of the country in the throes of cold weather and ice storms, it seemed appropriate to start off with a color that reflects that feeling! Even here in Phoenix, the temps hovered at a chilly 44 all morning (Don’t hate me! My blood is thin.). I thought this image…”.
You can see pale blue in this image, and yet the object in the image is was began in the farthest thing from icy…red, hot fire! It’s a glass, lampwork bead made by Kaye Husko and out of the fire came “ice” in the form of these beads, cold and sparkly with a pale blue cast. Bits of silver melted in as well, ending in hard jewels of glass.
From there, they made their way to this bracelet, wired with sterling silver and hammered rings. Glittering and hard as ice!
