Orchid Lariat

Inspired by “Cattelya Orchid and Three Hummingbirds” 1871

Orchid Lariat 1 Orchid Lariat 2I really loved the color scheme and the theme of this month’s challenge. I had in mind a more complex necklace, but as I had a really busy schedule this month, I had to settle for a lariat (my first lariat anyway). I have made the orchid flower, the rose bud and the butterflies using polymer clay, chalks and alcohol inks. It’s always fun to play with polymer clay and alcohol inks, adding sometimes chalks, sometimes mica powder. The results are always beyond expectations.
