Sunny Yellow

yellowsilver1

It is a very rare thing to find a Sunday post here on the blog. I couldn't wait till tomorrow though. I had a freaking awesome hollow making day on the torch yesterday. This being in the studio everyday thing has really had it's benefits. I am lovin' it.

I am at a total loss for what to name this new creation. When I came up from the studio with it on, it made Ron say "wow". I am thinking "Sunshine Daisies" but that is kinda corny. I can't help it though. Every time I see something yellow the phrase "sunshine, daisies, bottom, mellow, turn this stupid fat rat yellow" from Harry Potter runs through my head. Something needs to be named that so I can stop having that stuck in my head, LOL.

Okay, so this piece might end up being submitted to something special. There is an exhibit coming to the Memorial Art Gallery called Glass Wear. While the show is running, glass artist from The Gallery Store will be having trunk shows at the museum. (more info on my trunk show at a later date). The Gallery Council is asking that the trunk show artists donate a piece to be auctioned to benefit the museum. The aution pieces will be on display during the Glass Wear exhibit up through the night of the Glass Gala on May 1st. I have been told that you'll be able to bid online too!! How cool is that?!? I wanted to design something wowie and zowie that could hold it's own with the types of pieces that will be on display in the exhibit. This might just be "the one". Ron is thinking it is just too good to give away... I would love to hear your thoughts!!

OH!! I almost forgot... there is gonna be a Bead Box Update tomorrow!! Stay Tuned!!

This is a beautiful creation! I usually lurk, but couldn't resist commenting on this one. I love the intricate wire links and the way it contrasts with the larger beads...

It's definitely a wowie, kazowie necklace. The grays always make me think "elegant." How about Sunshine Elegance? Or Elegant Sunshine? Or (if you're slaphappy) Sunshine & Elephants (since the gray reminds me of an elephants...I don't know why.) I love your chain work in this. Yummy. This really is a yummy necklace. I might have to agree with your husband...too good to give away.

Your necklace is really a "WOW"! I love the colors and textures and transparency of the beads! The coils are really cool! I sort of like Mellow Yellow. You've got the yellow beads and the mellow of the rest of it. I love it!

Simply georgeous!!

The colors remind of me of a Honey Bee ... very sweet!... and the "buzzing" of the curled wire. Pick a name out of that?

As far as the auction...go for it. You can make version 2, right?

I have to agree with the earlier posters! I love this necklace.

Names...hmmm..the beads remind me of planets with the yellow beads being the sun.

Solar...meteor, planetary..

Something along those lines.

Kerry,
This is gorgeous and a show stopper for sure!!! I love the little wire links and the big eye-catching hollows. I agree with Ron that it's a keeper...I'm afraid you won't make another for yourself (knowing you)! But what a statement it would be for the auction as well. Hmmm...

It's stunning and elegant, Kerry. I love it.
