My poem and picture were of daffodils. Little did Heather know I love daffodils, along with all other spring flowers - more than other flowers. Probably because they come after the long cold winter... probably because our gardens back where I grew up were full of daffodils... probably because they are such delicate and strong flowers at the same time.
I am not very fond of yellow - but for daffodils I make an exception: I love their colour :)
So here I was, with the most delicate and beautiful pendant I've ever seen - painted by hand, with this lovely daffodil on a azure sky, in the green grass...
I had this idea at first... but it meant some extra time I didn't have on my hands... so I settled on a variation of that idea. Beads started to take shape on my desk:
yellow, for the daffodils:
more blue (just because I am in love with this shade and with making my own clasp :) this time an eye for the hook was born too; of course both beaded):
The necklace went through 2 length variations until I was happy with it - and I wore it a few times already, it wears beautifully, there is something special about a beaded chain, that's for sure!
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
by William Wordsworth
