September ABS Blog Tour

The September blog tour is out.  The comment on my submission:

"Angela Lund-Logan made a beautiful necklace using sumptuous satin ribbon and a special rose pendant. I really want to reach out and touch the soft ribbon and I love the bail that she made to hang the pendant. Very clever!"

September ABS challenge piece: Foxy Flora

My challenge piece for September is called Foxy Flora.  It is made with brown ribbon, 16 gauge amber parawire, 20 gauge copper wire, and Jolee's jewels amber bicones.  I used 26 gauge wire to attach the rose made by beetreebyme.

Fall Fashion Trends

It is that time of year again.

Baroque.  Now you can look like a tapestry.  Sorry, not a fan.

Sci-fi:  Liquid-like metallics combined with modern silhouettes.  These are a bit odd.

Asian influence: A mash up of marital art influences, kimono tops, and cherry blossom prints.

Black and White: Geometric feel with a touch of surrealism

Pantsuits in every shape and color.  Single breasted, double breasted, and tuxedo.  Some are metallic and some are floral prints.

70's prints: retro silhouettes, sheath dress, and psychedelic prints.

Neo-Goth: bondage inspired details (PVC) with Victorian elements (lace).

Bejeweled.  Nothing more needs to be said.

Bordeaux leather.  Since I am not a fan of reds, I do not think I will be partaking in this trend.

Military.  I am quite impressed with this.  Victoria Beckham has a very nice black and gray dress.
