'Aztec Flower' is my latest design motivated by the OTTBS monthly challenge for March 2014. I love pattern and prints - so immediately drew inspiration from Aztec Civilisation - their jewelry uses the mediums of Copper and Turquoise. As in most creative processes - this design started out as a multidimensional circular inspired geometric art focal - except the beads had other plans! It blossomed into this beautiful design ..........and perhaps more symbolically made links with the religious sacrifices of the Aztec Flower war.
Beading groups are a great source of inspiration. As a member of the online Operation Tackle that Bead Stash group my creativity has evolved/mutated and I have made valued friendships within the group. I already have plans for this months Challenge. However, I am currently beavering away on designs for the blog hop reveal next week.
