Getting Creative

Creativity is a strange creature. It can't be forced. It should never really be controlled. And what grabs the creative eye from one day to the next seems to depend on various factors we can't always explain. 

A Touch of Red

Recently these little red beads caught our eye, and we wanted to do something a little different…

The red contrasts beautifully with the simple silver-coloured chain. Dainty, simple, yet very eye catching.

Our next challenge was to find just the right way to bring it all together. We wanted to create something elegant in its simplicity. After a good hour or so of trying out different methods of draping the chain to get it just right, we were finally happy with the design. Now it was time to start adding the little red beads. This required carefully twisting each metal pin by hand, to form just the right sized loop to attach to the chain. (And people wonder why artistic types are often a bit loopy!)
