Happy Holidays from Elysian Studios!
I'm excited to be a part of the Art Bead Scene Blog Hop!
See the list of participants below, and click on their links to see their wonderful ornaments!
To spread some Holiday Cheer, we are giving away one of these ornaments, so leave a comment and a winner will be chosen at random on December 10th!
My ornaments for this year were inspired by my character, "Little Zen" (and who doesn't need a little of that this time of year?) Visually, these are incredibly simple, the construction process was a bit more involved. The birds are sculpted from white polymer clay, and drilled for beading. Each one is then adorned with red peppermint-inspired accents at their neck.. One has a flowing red scarf with a peppermint swirl brooch, one has a sparkling necklace made with peppermint skinner blend discs, and the third boasts a ring of delicious peppermint candies, all made with polymer clay. A handmade red and white holiday bead hangs below each bird, who is nested in a hand-cut and assembled two-tone bayleaf wreath. All have been strung for hanging with additional red glass and gold metal beads, with a gold clasp used for the top hanger and a bottom "branch." Handmade tags from Polyshrink film were inscribed with our logo and the date to commemorate this holiday season!
