Allegory Gallery Challenge: Hidden Cove Reveal

What a beautiful kit this was! Taken from Pantone's colors of the season, Andrew picked the blues and tans this time. I think one is actually called Snorkel Blue!

Here is an AMAZING MakuRaku pendant I've been hoarding that I wanted something to help pull out the colors of the bird...

Isn't Raku beautiful! It seems eternally liquid or wet, but that is the way good Raku looks with all the iridescence. I thought this color blue would be a perfect fit. It was, take a look...

I like loved the large hole big blue vintage plastic so much that I bought more from Allegory Gallery along with the green large hole that I found there.

Check out how close this plastic looks to matte stone, it's pretty darn cool!

  3. Love that rake bird and you chose the perfect beads to match and make a fantastic and playful necklace.

  4. Oh my, all those yummy textures and colors are just wonderful. And I agree - the bird alone is a centerpiece which you have shown off to perfection!

  5. I LOVE this!!!! Definitely one of my favorite pieces that you have made. That bird is awesome!!!!!!

  6. Oh my gosh, this is great! You did the Maku bird proud and the Hidden Cove theme proud. The bird looks like it is standing on the pier on a beautiful summer day!

  7. Fantastic! Such a great way to showcase the Maku piece. I love how you've brought color around the piece using the cording! Very striking! And I like how the wing has just a touch of blue and it really shines because of the complimentary beads! Thanks for playing along!
