Sometimes an idea takes on a life of it’s own, starting or stopping in a completely different place than where I thought it would at inception.
Atlantis is such.
I fell in love with the fossil-esque seahorse cabochon, with no idea where it would lead, or even when I would use it. Turns out, that was sooner rather than later.
From there, things just grew and grew and grew. Hey, these green jade cabochons look good, let’s add them. How about this filigree? Sure thing!
Oh, there are those nano beads (much more difficult to get than when I first acquired them) I’ve been wanting to use, they work too. On it went; quite the journey of discovery.
The symmetry of the piece was also a challenge for me, as I rarely do symmetrical. I’m much too “bent” a personality.
After that was fringe. Yes, fringe. More Fringe. Of different lengths, with different drops at the ends. Sometimes a dagger. Sometimes a sea shell. I think I have finally figured out fringe, at least for the time being.
