Seed Pod Jewelry / Бижута със шушулки

Compared to flowers, seed pods may even look ugly. But they carry the seeds of life and rebirth. No wonder there are many legends about them, as you will learn from AJE blog, where they star in the July theme challenge (thanks to Jen Cameron). At the time the challenge was announced, I was trying to master Kathy Frey's dimensional wire wrapping (this post). One of the shapes she's teaching is seed pods. I made some earrings with mine:
В сравнение с цветчетата, шушулките (семенните кутийки) може да ви изглеждат дори грозни. Но те носят семената на живота и прераждането. И са породили много легенди, за които можете да научите от тази публикация в блога AJE за юлското предизвикателство, което е... шушулки (благодарение на Джен Камерън)! В момента на обявяване на предизвикателството се учех на 3-D увиване с тел по уроче на Кати Фрей (тази публикация). Един от моделите е семенна шушулка (за себе си го бях кръстила "пирамидка"). С моите направих обици:




I also made some pods my way - they have a loop on one side and close like a box (sort of) on the other. I might share the how-to later :)
Също така, направих шушулки по друг начин - с халка от едната страна, а от другата се затварят като кутийка (или нещо подобно). Мисля дори по-късно да ви покажа как точно ги правя :)


This challenge is open to all types of art and media, I am heading to check out what amazing things the other participants have made - they always do!
Това предизвикателство е отворено за всякакви видове изкуство и изразни средства, отивам да видя какви забележителни неща са сътворили другите участници! А те са:

  1. Very cool! I have thought about trying a technique like that before, but failed once and haven't come back to it yet.
    You and your beautiful pieces definitely inspire me!

    1. Thank you, Cathy! There is some airiness about the first pair, I guess. I started filling the pods later just because I wanted to see how they would look :)

    1. Thank you, Raven! I'm glad you like them, I'm not sure which one I like more - the empty pod or the pod full of beads? I made one half-full (not shown here), just in case but I'm still hesitant :)

  10. These are so lovely. They look like poppy seed pods that are completely dried. Your wire work is exceptional.

  11. Your wire work pods are lovely - but so exciting when they are filled with beads/gems. Gorgeous. And a creative way to match up your class with the theme. Glad you could join us!

    1. Thank you, Jenny! It was a lucky coincidence but one that encouraged me to diversify the original project and it felt quite satisfactory!
