Playing with Colour
I had client revisit me today for another cardi. This lovely lady has brought me something to work with before (a houndstooth fabric) and this time it is a piece of jewelry (pictured). It's a piece of art glass as a neck piece with the most iridescent colours of glass overlay.
The pendant shimmers and changes colour like taffeta, the photo just doesn't do it justice, so I pulled some cones off the shelves and even one that my client wasn't sure of, but it completed the grouping. I'm looking forward to putting them together.
Also my client came in looking for a black with colour...... then after chatting and looking at colours she decided to go with a colour for the main body of the garment and the black will be incorporated into it with the colours. Wheeeee!
As well as this bright spot in my day, this lady is also a breast cancer survivor! We exchanged our stories, which is always encouraging for me as I got through this. She told me that I would get my real hair back eventually ..... good, 'cause I've a closet full of bottles of 'stuff' for curly hair!!!
No appt with my surgeon yet so I still have no idea when I'll have surgery. Better go and call the office.
