Inspiration from Vintage styles.
As I think many crafty people do when I see an interesting piece or unique item I can immediately envision a use for, I buy it. My inspiration comes from items. More often than not the idea changes completely, but I tell myself as long as I can use it it’s not a waste to buy. The vintage plastic cabochon in this piece was one of those items. Along with three other different cabs, Id initially sought out to seed bead them. Since I’ve moved a little away from seed beading much anymore these beautiful cabs sat around for a while. However a trick I do to get over artistic blocks is to rummage through literally everything so I can remember all the hidden treasures I forgot about. Finally I was able to think of a new plan for these gorgeous cabs. I have only used one so far, but I need more filigrees before I can play continue to play with the others.
