Ack! The end of July is almost upon us, and again, cutting it so close … with another last minute submission for Dry Gulch’s colour design challenge.

This month’s theme revolves around sunny & bright, fresh, summer colours in terracotta, golden sand, lemon meringue, green juice and avocado.

I ended up creating two pieces for this challenge – a necklace, and a bracelet.

The first one is a sweet little owl necklace –  “Spread Your Wings” … a hand stamped and patina’d arte metal tag, with a colourized owl charm, a beautiful etched glass bead in shades of both golden sand and lemon meringue by Burnt Glass Studio, a tiny terracotta czech glass bead, lemon yellow waxed cotton and avocado green leather.

and the second piece is a summery lampwork bead and leather bracelet in the same colours …

Hope you are all having a happy summer!
