An experiment in free form micro macrame knotting or a pattern gone horribly awry? You decided. I think I like it. I played around with some free form a while back (remember this post?) and then sort of went away from it for a while. Here lately I haven't been wanting to conform to the rules of normalcy (go ahead - have your fun with that one). I've just been sitting down with some string and letting the knotting go where it may. No plan, no sketch, no preconceived notion of where it might end up.
It feels right. I love the texture on this turquoise piece and how it somehow feels like beachy waves. I decided to play up that angle when I added the pop of bright orange with the howlite starfish bead.
This purple number reminded me of a butterfly somehow. A deformed, modern art butterfly, maybe... Or a bat. But it seemed like it needed a little "something", too, so I added a Czech glass flower. Just one.
I really like how just that one little bead seems like the perfect accent. The perfect shoes to go with the perfect outfit kind of thing.
If you're looking for me, I'll be over there outside of the box. Coloring outside the lines.
