Vintaj “Twinkling Lights” December 2012 Challenge

Written By: admin - Nov• 28•12

“The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks;
The long day wanes; the slow moon climbs; the deep
Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends.
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die…”
Alfred Lord Tennyson

    Stunning focal design. And your supporting beads are just superb in every detail!

  2. WOW! 2 challenges the same day. I don’t think I would have been that brave. This piece is awesome.

  3. What a great design! I am always impressed with how you push the limits of a component and rework it into something else completely. It never would have occurred to me to stitch the pieces together! Enjoy the day. Erin
