Ocean Blog Hop

 C'est le grand jour. Lisa Lodge de A Grateful Artist - Pine Ridge Treasures organise des défis et le thème de celui-ci est l'océan. Vous auriez devinez en regardant ce qu'elle m'a envoyé.
Sur le moment, j'ai eu peur, beaucoup de bleu. Vous me direz, j'aurai pu m'en douter.
C'était il y a un certain temps maintenant, et beaucoup de bleu est passé par là. Je crois que je commence à l'apprivoiser.

Today is the reveal of the Ocean Blog Hop. It is organized by Lisa Lodge from A Grateful Artist - Pine Ridge Treasures, she organizes many hops and if you look on your right you will see the next ones.
Well, this one is about the ocean. You probably guessed from the beads she sent me. 
When I received them, I was scared! So much blue! I should have known, ocean, blue…
Now that was quite a while ago, and since then, I've worked a lot with blue and I think I'm getting quite comfortable with it.

Pendant, Firefly Design Studio

J'ai commencé petit, avec les boucles d'oreilles.
I started small with some earrings.
Charms, Round Rabbit

Ensuite je me suis attaquée au pendentif pour lequel j'ai tissé une chaîne "Dancing Waves Necklace" tirée du livre de Jill Wiseman, Beautiful Beaded Ropes.

Then I took care of the pendant, for which I wove a rope from Jill Wiseman's Beautiful Beaded Ropes, Dancing Waves Necklace.

Ensuite, je me suis amusée avec les pièces de métal que j'ai peintes, et repeintes pour essayer de leur donner des airs de trésors rouillés du fond des mers.

Then I had some fun with Vintaj patinas to paint the metal parts and try to give them the look of some old treasures found at the bottom of the sea.

Enfin, j'ai tissé une spirale avec les rondes bleus métallisées, que je n'ai pas pu m'empêcher d'agrémenter. Un fermoir poisson et un pendentif Round Rabbit.

Finally I wove a spiral with the blue metallic glass beads. I couldn't help myself. I had to add a Round Rabbit pendant, some chain and a fish clasp.

Il me restait  les perles gouttes et j'avais décidé de m'arrêter là. 
Hier, j'ai eu envie de faire un collier noué avec du lin et je me suis dit, et pourquoi pas les gouttes.
Des poissons, des coquillages, de la nacre, et voilà:

I still had the cultured sea glass drop beads, but I had decided to stop there.
Yesterday, I wanted to make a knotted necklace with some waxed linen and I thought, why not the drops. Some fish, shells, mother of pearl later, there it is:
