Inspired Design Challenge No. 2 - Spring Hyacinth
 Lori Bergmann is the great organiser of another (for me) new Challenge,
thank you  so much Lori. Her biweekly Challenge is 'defiant',
and I’ll try to participate as often as possible. It’s fun!
When looking at her photo I got touched  by the very intense colours
of this beautiful hyacinth, I could almost smell it! Every year when seeing this flower,
I  know it soon will be springtime with hopefully ☼ lots of sunshine…

My contribution is a simple one, a bracelet in hyacinth-‘ish’ colours,
the 2 glass beads are made by me. The blue kyanite beads are going so well
with the colours of the hyacinth, that was my first thought when searching
for beads in my stash! 

I added some Shell Pearls, Abalone, rough Lapis Lazuli
chunks and Montana Rock Crystal beads. The green colours you find
in the glass beads and in the Abalone charms.
In Greek Mythology there is a story about Hyacinthus,
just follow the link  if you like to read it...
