I'm sure it's wimpy compared to what happens in other parts of the country, but for us...it's quite exciting. I've even heard that a Sam's Club not far from here took a direct lightning strike! Personally, I think we should all get to go home. You know...just in case.
But in the meantime, tropical jungles it is!
This design is a little on the funky, crazy side compared to what I usually do, but tropical jungles are not tame and orderly now are they? When I think of jungles, I hear words like wild, lush, riotous, etc. And this necklace certainly fits that description.
I started with the etched brass dragonfly focal from Summer's Studio and added in some dyed green palm seed rectangle beads I got at a bead show last year. Then, I found these dark brown crescent beads (don't know what the material is - some kind of wood or seed, I think?) at Michael's. The green Czech glass flowers have stripes of orange down their sides so I added in the dyed orange wood beads from Fusion beads.
A few touches of purple Czech glass and brass seed beads are the final accents.
