Pansy and Petunia

      Around town, the pansies are still blooming like mad. Apparently, here in central Louisiana, they are an all-winter plant. I made some new round pendants this weekend, and most were inspired by florals. The images came from the french design book my friend sent me, they are so color saturated! very fun to work with.
     Remember a while back, I said the crucible burned itself out? I got a new one for the pewter, it's larger and hotter than the first one, so I'm re-melting all the pewter that was in the old one and making new bezels. For these round pendants, I decided to put a small hole in the bottom for a dangle or chain, I like to use colorful beads as dangles in my designs, so these will be able to have them.
     Maybe next weekend, I'll plant some fresh starts for my summer square foot garden, if the weather cooperates. 
     P.S. I put more things on sale in the Etsy shop ... maybe there's something you love on sale!

Pansies are one of my favorite flowers because they bring back such fond memories of my omma's garden. She had the deep purple and yellow one's and I vaguely remember she called them monkey faces. I've got brocolli, cabbage, peas, and onions started. Still pulling carrots and scallions from last fall. Fall planted garlic and shallots are becoming enormous. I love my garden!

Sharon, it's the lovely book of french antique images that gives me so much to work with, my main thing is to make sure I don't lose any color or saturation in making the focal. I'm pleased that you like them!

LeAnn! So glad the little pendants brought out some memories. My grandmother always grew big beds of petunias in the summertime, along with climbing roses. And I can't smell the scent of honeysuckle in the air without thinking of her. Scent is a big memory cue!
