|"Cilla" by Helen Wyatt|
I received this in the post this morning from my very talented lampworking friend Helen Wyatt! She is a member of the FHF Team on Etsy and you can find her here. My favourite colour is orange and this just leapt out at me, but it also has hints of pink, purple, peach and cream - a real festival of colour. Even though I've read lampworking tutorials I just can't quite get my head round how this was designed and made!
I hope I can do this justice, I have a bead mix from Stitchncraft which has just been waiting in my stash for the right project. At the moment I am contemplating a spiral or textured rope with Cilla as the focal dangle with some mixed bead and crystal fringe. I am promising myself I have to finish one project before starting another, which I find hard sometimes, particularly with bigger projects, so this is just the inspiration I need.
