Artisan Clay Design Team reveal day was yesterday...it's the last Friday of every month. I didn't realize until yesterday morning that the it happened to already be the last Friday in June. Nice. I thought I had another week! Oh well, it gave me an excuse to get up early this morning after a bit of an "extra social" evening celebrating at my promotion party. I got to enjoy some yummy coffee with skim milk (because the creamer is gone) and get my Artisan Clay inspiration on...this lovely smokey donut was my starting point:
It looks similar to the piece I worked last month, but I love that design concept so much that I figured I'd keep with it but go with the neutral smokey tones and add some complementary stones.
I actually spent more time stringing the bracelet strands because I kept rethinking how I wanted to arrange the lights and darks. I dug into the stash and used some Beadalon crimp ends that I've had forever. I found a lot of great stones that would work with this smokey theme...
Many thanks to Kristie for the great piece and for being understanding of my calendar challenges. :)
