The Big Bang

The Beading Forums' recent YOJ theme was "The Big Bang" ... and what better way to get the creative juices flowing again than with a YOJ Challenge.

The cab in this piece is by a lovely lampie girl call Bree. The first time I saw this cab I just had to have it ... and when I saw this theme, I knew I had the right cab for it. This beautiful black cab has an explosion of colour down the centre that just reminded me of those images you see in space. To create the impression of new stars forming and the explosion of colour that emanates from a "Big Bang", I used, of course, Swarovski Crystals in Jet, Jet AB and a gorgeous Sapphire ABx2.

I love this piece, not only for the colour, but for getting my mojo back into first gear. Hopefully many more will come, and my mojo will switch into second gear. :)
