Garnet Kisses

Garnet Kisses
Project Friday Dec 28, 2012
by Wink Artisans
Every Friday, I create a project for fun... and to exercise my creativity (plus is I get to show it to a group so I kinda have to do it). The parameters were Garnet and/or Capricorn.  I chose garnet as I love reds. This is how it went down. I could not get going with this one. It was an ugly monkey on my back. Then I googled garnet. Is a gemstone, the birthstone for January, rich, deep red and burgundy. Which let me to the following:


red

burgundy
berries
cherries
lipstick
lips
kisses
love
valentines
sexy
sex
dates
duracell bunny
hotel
cities
condoms
love letters
love notes
touching 
textures
layers of clothing

I eventually I settled on a lips collage using various reds and burgundies. Funny thing, when I cut out the lips, they stood alone as design elements for my jewelry. Whether is the top of the bottom lip, a specific half can easily become an earring, a pendant, and even a cuff with or without the coloring. I will use this for my jewelry.
