Raspberry Macaron, Lemon Sorbet

Inspiration Board Results

I was attracted to the composition & delicate architecture
presented in this beautiful photo Raspberry Macaron, Lemon Sorbet

My goal was to carry the dessert configuration into jewelry design. The first several sketches were a literal translation with two domed pieces connected by a bridge of circles, which were to be polymer clay balls. But as I've learned over the years not all ideas manifest into reality. This being one of them. After many attempts, I was not able to carry out the design. The result would be amazing, so I do hope to revisit this construction.

I continued to sketch & scratch my brain... and the result -

In the dessert photo, I love the crevices where light & dark meet unexpectedly. I drew my color palette from such areas. Cherry red meets dusty black. I am pleased with the result & excited about the possibilities that will be born from the concept of marrying bead weaving into polymer clay.

This pendant will be made into a necklace & added to my Etsy shop. Look soon :)
