First off, the beads were awesome:
As was the theme:
Wabi-sabi is the concept of the impermanence of beauty, that there is a beauty in the broken, the rusty, the old.
I couldn't wait to get started. And actually, I found wabi-sabi everywhere!
I bet you don't know this, but by day, I split my time at our local Township doing Admistrative stuff for the Public Works and Police Departments.
On the day this challenge came out, I happened to be in the garage taking some pictures of some equipment. And let's just say, I saw a ton of wabi-sabi in there!
Here's a few pics I took.
So with all this yellow inspiration, I knew that I was going to have to shake things up a little with the original color scheme.
Here is what I came up with:
I used yellows, reds, grays and mixed metals. And I love the outcome!
Here is an up-close look:
I absolutely love it!!!!
