|Textile Design for Cretonne, 1928? by Lois Mailou Jones|
The firefly ceramic that I used in this bracelet is from Blu Mudd Design. I love her ceramic cuffs and have used several of them in my bracelets. I like the size, pattern of words with the dragonfly on top. The rich, warm, earthy color of the glaze go so well with the red, oranges and yellows in the ceramic and in the textile. When trying to decide on the metal to use in the bracelet, I considered gunmetal. I thought that using it would allow me to add that color from the painting to the bracelet, but I just couldn't. Since I am drawn to the warm colors of the painting, I wanted to keep the bracelet warm too.
I hope that the textile and my dragonfly bracelet bring you pleasant memories of warm summer winds in the garden.
