Indigo Plume



"Indigo Plume" is a design based on a lovely Northcott quilt fabric (pictured below).  A simple trip to the fabric store leaves my mind whirling.  I often find myself pulling out the sketch book or iPhone and taking notes mid aisle.  Always asking: "How can this pattern translate into a glass design?"  Many times, 2 or 3 bead designs emerge based on the inspirational item.  On this particular occasion, I debated adding a layer of violet to the enamel base, however I decided to stick with a monochromatic theme of vivid blue with gray feathery plumes.   A nice way to send off the month of March and welcome in April.  Hope you are having a lovely 2014 so far!
