Inspiration (& creating a need)

Silly me! I should have known better than to click on that 'Events' newsletter that arrived in my inbox.

What caught my attention was this image....



Isn't it fabulous? I don't even like green or yellow that much, but this image just drew me in. Maybe it was the costuming - I am a sucker for anything to do with costuming of any sort, historical, theatrical, dance, stage & shows, cultural - you name it, if it involves fibre, fabrics & colour I love it.

Of course this just had to be the picture for the latest Cirque du Soleil show to visit New Zealand "Dralion", described as
"the fusion of ancient Chinese circus tradition and the avant-garde approach of Cirque du Soleil. The shows name is drawn from its two main symbols: the dragon, representing the East, and the lion, representing the West. Dralion derives much of its inspiration from Eastern philosophy with its perpetual quest for harmony between humankind and nature."


I'd love to go, it's been years since I went to any type of show, but alas the Cirque du Soliel is only on in Auckland.

Never mind - that image has been enough to make me want to try the colours, somehow in a bead.

Oh, I definitely see some swirling colors harmonizing themselves into a Deb bead! Great pic! I'm not much on greens and yellows, either, but this one is magical, isn't it?

I an almost see those beads, Deb, but will they include chaldecony?

Deb said...

ROFL - Mallory...funny you should ask!. I was playing last night & well made a bead with this in mind that did include chalcedony, but not as you know it!

*Very* inspirational image, Deb. You should go for it!

Thought of you yesterday as I had my first try with Chaldedony, which I will be calling "G-109" because I always (apparently) mispronounce the real name. Robin gave me some to try at Arrow Springs, and it seemed to work well, though I didn't see the beads after.
