The Color of Dreams Blog Hop * Reveal day*

The Color of Dreams Blog Hop

Welcome to the reveal day of "The Color of Dreams Blog Hop" !!.

For you who don't know about this blog hop event please visit here first, Rita who created this event and wrote about this blog hop nicely, I love her writing. And I also love her kindness of sharing beautiful and unique beads with all of us,50 participants. She wants everyone creating a jewelry to show or to represents our dream. We need to focus on one rule "If we can dream it, we can achieve it".

The bead in the middle is the bead that Rita sent to me, handmade by Patricia Handschuh,and each of participants got different kind of beads.

My beads.

After I got my beads, I decided to make some polymer clay beads to accompany this beautiful beads. I used   the beads from Patricia as an inspiration beads.
I started with making this leaf beads.

 After that I also made these round beads with my left over leaf canes.

Last but not least I made this focal beads.

My dreams.

I have been making handmade jewelry for about three years and I always want to open a store to sell my handmade jewelry some day. I am thinking about a small store or boutique to display all of my handmade jewelry and also to display my mother works ( she is a seamstress). I think it would be a great idea, what do you think?
I have no idea when this dreams become reality, our family always moving from one country to another country. My husband is visiting professor in University of Notre Dame, Indiana and in about two months our family is going to move to another country. I guess I have to keep on dreaming until some day our family can settled down in one country ( hopefully my home country Indonesia) and I can open my handmade jewelry store.

My Jewelry.

Using Patricia bead and also my handmade beads I made this necklace.

  11. I love how you were inspired to make polymer clay beads and a pendant to go along with your pc pillow bead. I struggled myself on which technique to use. You nailed it. A completely beautiful dream!

  12. Your piece turned out so beautiful. I love that you used your own talent for working with polymer clay to go right in line with your color of dreams bead. I love a lot!!!

  13. Beautiful necklace, Asri. I can't decide which beads I like best ....the leaves, green round beads. pink cylinder beads or pink rose focal. They're all amazing!!!! You have incredible talent and artistry and should be sharing with the world. I'm sure any shop you have will be a great success. Thanks for sharing your dream.

  14. wow! that is the most different bead I've seen so far, and I love it. I really love what you did...making your own beads to go with it, you did a fantastic job. I hope you are able to achieve your dream of your own shop someday!

  15. A big dream, worthy of those gorgeous beads: you matched Patricia's bead so well, in such a charming way! Love the result - wishing you to achieve your dreams!

  16. OH MY! I love love love the pink and green beads! You did an AMAZING job! Love how you matched the greens and added to her starting point - job well done!

  25. Asri, my dream would be to create art beads like you! The beads you made to accompany Patricia's pillow bead are absolutely charming! And your necklace is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

    I love your dream of going home, of returning to Indonesia, of opening a bead & seamstress shop with your mother. It feels so nurturing and cozy and lovely as i read your dream, and so very real! Reading your words, your beautiful heart and soul touches me and I see you there -- living your dream come true!
